Event Description
Practical Therapeutic Strategies You Can Use with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Clients Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is widely present in society, and often goes unrecognized except for troubling symptoms. Violence, combat, abuse, accidents, weather and natural disasters can all produce troubling memories for the victim. Descriptions and comparative utility will be presented for various PTSD therapies, including EMDR, CBT, exposure therapy, etc. The target population for discussion will be adults including elderly, although the concepts are applicable to all ages. The workshop will be highly interactive. In a class exercise pairs of audience members will take on the roles of therapist and client in a scenario involving traumatic memories and current symptoms. The therapist will assess the problem, and apply appropriate therapy interventions in a simulated session. This workshop is complementary to the Violence in Today’s Society workshop occurring the same day, and can be attended with or without enrollment in the Violence workshop. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to: 1. Critique the utility and applicability of multiple techniques for the treatment of PTSD. 2. Explain the causative factors of post traumatic stress disorder. 3. Apply improved clinical skills and coping mechanisms with this difficult population. 4. Appreciate the client-therapist relationship by experiencing a simulated therapy exercise.
