Prolonged Exposure Therapy Training

Green Bay, WI US
February 22, 2016 to February 29, 2016

This course is designed to increase participant knowledge about accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of PTSD.  PTSD is a common mental health diagnosis among veterans; however, utilization of evidence-based interventions in the treatment of the disorder is relatively low.  By attending this training, participants will acquire knowledge about factors that confer risk for PTSD and learn to identify mechanisms of change in effective trauma-focused treatments.  This course will detail the components of Prolonged Exposure Therapy and assist participants in identifying individuals who would benefit from this intervention in reducing PTSD symptoms.  In addition, participants will acquire necessary skills for implementation of Prolonged Exposure Therapy as a treatment for PTSD.
