Abstract

We sought to predict posttreatment PTSD symptom scores (Clinician- Administered PTSD Scale scores) among motor vehicle accident (MVA) survivors with PTSD who had received either cognitive behavioral treatment (CBT; n = 30) or supportive psychotherapy (SUPPORT; n = 27) using pretreatment variables. We could account for 43% (CBT) to 70% (SUPPORT) of variance in the measure of PTSD symptoms. The most consistent predictors were pretreatment PTSD symptom scores. Comorbid conditions, especially depression, and degree of initial impairment were also significant predictors.
