May 21, 2015

TORONTO — Results from two randomized trials presented here indicate brief cognitive-behavioral therapy significantly reduced suicide attempts and crisis response plans reduced negative emotions among military personnel with suicidal thoughts.

To assess effects of brief cognitive-behavioral therapy (BCBT), Craig J. Bryan, PsyD, ABPP, of the University of Utah, and colleagues randomly assigned 152 active duty soldiers to BCBT or treatment as usual. Study participants had been discharged from inpatient psychiatric hospitals prior to study enrollment. Researchers conducted follow-up for 2 years.
