Course information

The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is offering a 2-day evidence-based workshop for Tri-Service military/DoD/GS behavioral health providers at Walter Reed Naval Military Medical Center, MD​​​ on 2-3 Oct. 2017, entitled "Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE)" The workshop is free and includes CEs, but any travel or expenses must be self-funded.

This intensive 2-day module provides training in PE, an evidence-based treatment of PTSD described in the manual, Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD – Therapist Guide, by Foa et al., 2007. It covers the theoretical underpinnings and research behind PE and reviews the main clinical techniques used in this structured protocol. Step-by-step instructions for conducting PE therapy sessions, including in-vivo and imaginal exposure, along with strategies for working with over- and under-engaged patients and other difficult cases, are shared. Videotaped examples of PE cases are used to demonstrate therapist skills. Participants are expected to do role-plays in class to practice PE techniques, and they must attend both days.
