Figure 14 is titled “Loss of PTSD diagnosis for exposure compared with exposure plus cognitive restructuring. “ The figure displays a forest plot reporting the risk difference in loss of PTSD diagnosis, exposure therapy compared with exposure plus cognitive restructuring. Data for Figure 14 are presented in Appendix F. This figure is described further in the “Loss of PTSD Diagnosis” section as follows: “Results of our meta-analysis indicate that the two interventions did not differ for achieving loss of PTSD diagnosis (risk difference, −0.01; 95% CI, −0.17 to 0.14; 3 trials, N=146). Taken together, consistent evidence (I2=0%) from three trials supports a conclusion of no significant difference for achieving loss of PTSD diagnosis for exposure therapy alone compared with exposure plus CR.”
