This article offers () an overview of evidence-based treatments for PTSD, () a description of a translational model of PTSD, and () a discussion of common barriers to dissemination and implementation of the empirically validated treatments. Recent studies in the field are discussed with a focus on pharmacotherapies, psychotherapies, and combined treatments.
