The Center for Deployment Psychology will be presenting a two-day course in the use of Prolonged Exposure Therapy on 18-19 March 2020, 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Eastern via Zoom. Registration for the course is $45 and comes with 14 CEs. (Please note the refund policy at the bottom of the page.) Space in this event is limited and registration will close once this cap is reached, even if that is before the final registration date. This course will be held online via Zoom.
Also, a functioning microphone is MANDATORY to attend, in order to be able to participate in the role-play sessions.
This intensive two-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.
This course will be presented via Zoom teleconferencing software. Zoom is browser-based, however an add-in may need to be installed before attending. Participants can test their computer's capabilities by clicking here (or visiting https://zoom.us/test). We recommend those using Internet connections on government or military locations test their ability to load Zoom in advance of the event to ensure there are no technical difficulties. If you encounter connection difficulties when using your computer, the Zoom app is also available for iOS and Android devices.
Attendees are also responsible for acquiring a copy of the required text for this workshop, Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD, Emotional Processing of Traumatic Experiences Therapist Guide, by Foa, Hembree, and Rothbaum (2007), published by Oxford University Press [ISBN: 978-0-19-530850-1].
Attendees are responsible to acquire a copy of the text prior to the workshop. It is available in print and electronic versions, and may be purchased from a number of vendors. The following links are provided for convenience only, and CDP does not endorse any specific vendor.
Please note: While this workshop will cover the same content as our face-to-face training workshops for Prolonged Exposure, attendance at CDP PE training events does not count toward certification in PE in the Veterans Health Administration (VA).
