On the Implementation of Written Exposure Therapy (WET) with Veterans Diagnosed with PTSD

Denise M. Sloan, Brian P. Marx

Abstract


We provide commentary on the article by Austern (2017) in which several composite PTSD treatment cases with veteran clients are presented. Written Exposure Therapy (WET) was implemented in each case, with varying levels of success. We provide additional background on the development of WET to provide readers with a better understanding of how this treatment was created. We also describe the available efficacy data supporting the use of WET as well as describe efficacy studies that are currently underway. Lastly, we comment on Austern’s use of WET in the three composite veteran cases that are described.
