All sessions were recorded, and a random subset (20%) was coded for adherence, competence, and proscribed elements by 2 independent raters. Training on loving-kindness meditation fidelity coding was provided by a study team member (D.J.K.), and training on CPT-C fidelity coding was provided by a psychologist with extensive experience coding CPT. For loving-kindness meditation, 92.8% of essential elements were delivered, and there were no proscribed elements. Competence in loving-kindness meditation delivery was rated on a 7-point scale (7 = excellent, 4 = satisfactory), with a mean (SD) competence score of 5.4 (0.5) or “good”; 96.3% of the elements were rated “satisfactory” or better. For CPT, 98.4% of unique and essential elements were included in all sessions, and there were no proscribed elements. Competence of CPT delivery was rated on a 5-point scale (5 = excellent, 3 = satisfactory); the mean (SD) therapist competence score was 4.0 (0.5) or “good,” and 97% of all elements were rated “satisfactory” or better. Adverse events were prospectively monitored, including hospitalizations, suicidality, death, and a prespecified level of increase in PTSD or depression score.
