There’s nothing special about the jug—a minor accessory in an office designed with the sort of tidy impersonality common to her field. And there’s no special elixir in it—just water. But all the same, the jug provides a certain kind of healing. When patients are struggling, crying, overcome in some way, Gottlieb, a Los Angeles based practitioner and author of the book Maybe You Should Talk to someone, will offer up a cup of water, pour it for them and hand it across. In that small gesture is a whole constellati...

CONCLUSION AND SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: The interpretation of the results is limited by the pilot nature of this study. The combination of psychosocial treatment with medication management mimics real-world treatment. In order to isolate the individual contributions of medication vs psychotherapy a much larger study would need to be conducted. (Am J Addict 2020;00:00-00).

AbstractIn practice, the duration of psychotherapy is determined by the patient's response to treatment.

Participants were 96 female assault survivors with chronic PTSD who received at least eight PE sessions with or without cognitive restructuring. Participants were ...
