Led by Aaron Brinen, Psy.D.,this Beck Institute specialty workshop will cover cognitive behavior therapy for PTSD. Learn exposure techniques and other skills specifically developed to aid clients in accessing salient trauma information, understanding their reactions and achieving a realistic perspective on the traumatic event.
Trauma is a common occurrence when an individual is exposed to or threatened by death, serious injury, or sexual violence. An in-depth explanation and illustration of prolonged exposure, a primary intervention for PTSD, will be included in this training, as well as cognitive techniques for imaginal revisiting of the trauma memory.
The incidence of post-traumatic stress disorder in the general population is as high as 8%, and in the active military and veteran population as high as 17%. Given the impact on individuals and families affected by PTSD, dissemination and implementation of effective treatments is a high priority.
