Description: This intensive two-day module provides training in CPT, an evidence-based treatment for PTSD. It presents theory underlying CPT, a brief overview of CPT’s empirical support, and step-by-step instructions in CPT protocol techniques. Throughout the workshop strategies for conceptualizing and dealing with co-morbidity, managing avoidance, and keeping patients optimally engaged are provided. Video clips of expert therapists demonstrate CPT skills, and participants are asked to do role-plays and other assignments to learn concepts and practice skills.

Participants who have not previously attended a CDP-led training in Second Life are also required to attend one of the pre-event "open houses" held online in Second Life.

Participants will not need to attend for the entire "open house," just a portion of the two-hour window. Participants must attend this "open house" session from the computer and Internet connection they intend to use for the training. The "open house" windows are as follows:

- Friday, 17 March 10 a.m. - Noon EASTERN

Failure to attend one of the Open Houses will result in being disenrolled from the training.
