Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Trauma, PTSD and Grief




Description

  • How to ethically protect yourself and your practice
  • Learn Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques through role plays and case example
  • Crisis management and interventions to protect your clients

Trauma, grief and loss are regular aspects of your practice; and yet, you may not really be aware of what works and what doesn’t work in helping clients move forward with their lives. You might even be causing your clients (and yourself) more harm…

This seminar pulls from cutting edge research to help you identify effective Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)-focused interventions to help clients cope in the aftermath of trauma, PTSD, grief and loss. It has been shown that CBT techniques are a powerful tool for trauma and PTSD. You will have an opportunity to put these new skills to practice during role-playing exercises and case examples throughout the day.

When working with clients suffering from trauma, grief and loss, you need to be aware of the risk factors for you, your practice and your clients. This seminar will address ways to effectively deal with crisis management and summarize how to be sure your clients are safe and using best practices to avoid litigation.

Vicarious trauma of the therapist (you!) is another serious problem that comes along with these clients. Caring for the self is equally important for you to be the best therapist you can be. This seminar will teach you mindfulness skills to use as a protective tool, as well as CBT techniques to help heal vicarious trauma that may affect your practice and your personal life.
