Time-limited psychotherapy conducted 2 to 9 months after demobilization was evaluated with Persian Gulf Theater veterans of Operation Desert Storm (ODS). Thirty five treatment-seeking veterans were contrasted with 20 non-treatment-seeking ODS Persian Gulf veterans in a repeated measures design at pretest, posttest, and 6-week followup assessments. In addition, psychotherapy participants at followup were contrasted with 80 non-treatment-seeking ODS Persian Gulf veterans from the same military units who were assessed one time at a comparable time point. Time-limited psychotherapy was associated with sustained improved psychosocial functioning and reduced levels of psychiatric and stress-related symptomatology.
