CDP Presents - Mind-Body Interventions for PTSD: Review of Evidence and Future Directions via Zoom
9 November 2021, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern
Description: In this 90-minute webinar, participants will learn about complementary and integrative interventions to enhance physical and psychological health and wellness in individuals exposed to trauma. The session will describe active mind-body treatments and review the empirical literature that supports mindfulness, yoga, tai chi, and relaxation interventions for PTSD. An ongoing study of Tai Chi and Wellness for Gulf War veterans will be reviewed.
The presenters will review current theories regarding pathways of action for mind-body interventions. They will demonstrate methods for integrating mind-body interventions with evidence-based approaches through presentation of case studies. Participants will be led through two brief experiential exercises. Participants will leave with knowledge about the potential benefits of using mind-body interventions in the treatment of PTSD and other post-deployment symptoms.
Please note: Space in this event is limited and registration will close once capacity has been reached, even if this is before the final registration date.
Target Audience: For behavioral health/healthcare providers who treat military personnel, veterans, and their families.
