Abstract

This article summarizes the achievements of the Koach project and attempts to draw conclusions regarding the treatment of chronic PTSD. It also attempts to reconcile the apparent contradictions between the participants' and therapists' positive impressions of the project and the less encouraging findings of the systematic assessment of its effectiveness.
