Culturally Adapted Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Medical Unexplained Physical Symptoms and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (CAMPOS)

(7K23MH080942-02)

The C ulturally A dapted Cognitive Behavior Therapy for M edical Unexplained Physical Symptoms and Pos ttraumatic Stress Disorder (CAMPOS) is funded by a Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award (K-23) (7K23MH080942-02). The goal of this 5 year research study is to adapt and integrate existing cognitive behavioral treatments for PTSD and for medically unexplained physical symptoms (MUPS) and to collect preliminary data on the feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of the adapted treatment. This study will develop a novel treatment to reduce these debilitating disorders and holds promise for providing insight into the socio-cultural factors associated with treatment outcomes among underserved minorities. CAMPOS will recruit 72 patients with those diagnoses and will randomly assign them either to the treatment or to a control (treatment as usual) group. Several psychological measures will be administered before and after the treatment to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment in symptoms reduction.
