CDP Presents: Present Centered Therapy for PTSD Online via Zoom
16 March, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern
Description: Post-traumatic nightmares are a distressing experience for patients, and do not necessarily resolve when the contributing trauma is addressed. A number of different protocols have been developed to target nightmares, but research findings often conflict and the field lacks clear practice guidelines. This webinar will provide clinicians with an overview of the different options for treatment of post-traumatic nightmares, including a comparison of the components and hypothesized mechanism of action of each. In the second half of the presentation, a panel discussion will use a detailed case vignette to illustrate real-world practical and conceptual considerations for the treatment of a patient who presents with nightmares.
Target Audience: For behavioral health/healthcare providers who treat military personnel, Veterans, and their families.
