VA Compensation and Pension Exams for PTSD and other Mental Disorders

This page provides information about VA Compensation and Pension Exams (C&P exams) with veterans who have filed a disability compensation claim with the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA), part of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), for PTSD or other mental disorders.

I will expand on information contained in an article I wrote with USMC combat veteran and forensic psychologist Dr. Robert Moering:

Worthen, M. D. & Moering, R. G. (2011). A practical guide to conducting VA compensation and pension exams for PTSD and other mental disorders. Psychological Injury and Law, 4(3-4), 187-216. doi:10.1007/s12207-011-9115-2 | http://bit.ly/ptsd-exams

I recommend first reading that article (PDF) for important background information.
