The livestream is between 9am-5pm CDT. Participants from other US and Canada states and time zones are welcome to participate if you are happy with the earlier or later time commitments in your region.
Registration is open to practicing graduate counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists, medical practitioners, mental health nurses, occupational therapists, social workers and psychotherapists.
The content is applicable to both adult and adolescent populations. The techniques will be immediately useful and effective for your clinical practice. The full four-day program attracts 39 trauma-focused professional development hours.
There is a difference in the best-practice treatment for PTSD (Day 1-2) vs Complex PTSD (Day 3-4). This program synthesises practical approaches from several modalities that are publishing positive outcomes for these clients and presents them using actual cases that will underpin your clinical practice in traumatology. The program will explain when exposure-based interventions are indicated and appropriate, and when other therapeutic needs must be addressed first, and how to meet these needs.
Day 1-2 is dedicated to treating PTSD clients utilising a cognitive behavioural approach. Day 3-4 is dedicated to the treatment of Complex PTSD (survivors of child abuse and neglect/ developmental trauma/prolonged interpersonal trauma) utilising the phase-based approach and incorporating current experiential techniques showing promising results with this population; drawn from Emotion Focused Therapy for trauma, Metacognitive Therapy, Schema Therapy, Attachment pathology treatment, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. Following Day 4 is an optional Trauma Case Study Group (included in your fee) and its purpose is to apply the skills presented in your Day 1-4 training to real cases and improve your ability to formulate a treatment plan with trauma clients.
