CDP Presents: Helping Patients with PTSD-Related Nightmares online via Zoom
19 June, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern
Description: Although occasional bad dreams are not an uncommon occurrence, nightmares in the context of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often have a significantly different presentation, with greater frequency, dream re-enactment behaviors, and more resultant distress and impairment. This free 90-minute (75-minutes didactics, 15-minutes Q&A) webinar will dive beyond the traditional view of nightmares as merely a symptom and explore the relationship between PTSD and nightmares. It will provide clinicians a way to conceptualize PTSD-related nightmares and an overview of the various assessment and treatment options available.
To access the course, on the day of the event, log into your account here: https://deploymentpsych.ce21.com/Account/MyAccount and click on the green "Launch Webinar" button.
After this webinar participants will be able to:
- Describe the prevalence of nightmares among patients with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and their association with other problems.
- Appraise methods of assessing PTSD-related nightmares
- Provide an overview of two treatment techniques to target PTSD-related nightmares
