(Helping Overcome PTSD and Enhancing Satisfaction)

Couple HOPES (Helping Overcome PTSD and Enhancing Satisfaction) is an online, guided self-directed program for people who struggle with symptoms of PTSD and a loved one. The goal of Couple HOPES is to empower the pair of individuals to address PTSD symptoms together and enhance their relationship at the same time. It’s based on the key elements of CBCT. The program consists of 7 online modules with training videos and exercises to teach the pair of individuals new skills to enhance their relationship and overcome PTSD. In the past, each pair was accompanied by a guide that helped them understand and implement new skills.
