To the Editor: Dr Monson and colleagues1 conducted a randomized controlled trial of cognitive-behavioral conjoint therapy delivered to patients for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and their significant others compared with a wait-list control group. However, whether the difference between the groups is due to a benefit of cognitive-behavioral conjoint therapy or a harm of waiting on a list is not clear.
