Draft APA Guideline on PTSD Treatment: Comment period ends December 3


We want to remind you that the draft version of APA’s “Clinical Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in Adults” has been posted and is open for your comments.  The website containing the draft guideline and comment portal will remain open until December 3, 2016. 

Comments provide the panel that is developing the guideline with valuable input as it works to produce the final version.  It is anticipated that the final version will be submitted to the Council of Representatives for approval as APA policy at its February 2017 meeting. 

We encourage you to read the document and share any comments that you have.  Background on APA’s clinical practice guideline initiative can be found in this newsletter article.
