Treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: An Assessment of the Evidence

This new report, from the Institute of Medicine, reviews the evidence regarding the efficacy of psychological and pharmacologic treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder, notes restrictions on conclusions related to certain settings or populations, comments on gaps in research and future research, answers particular questions regarding goals, timing, and length of treatment, and notes limitations in the evidence base.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on October 18, 2007 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
