Summary The purpose of this graduate project was to create a handbook for therapists to address the psychological consequences of intimate partner violence (IPV), specifically posttraumatic stress disorder (PSTD) in female survivors. This project describes various cognitive behavioral treatment outcomes. The handbook was designed for therapists and includes five therapeutic components from evidence-based trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) and cognitive trauma therapy for battered women (CTT-BW). The handouts focused on alleviating symptoms of PTSD in women who have been battered. The handbook can be used in session as a therapeutic tool.
