The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is offering a two-day evidence-based workshop on the use of Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE). This training will be held on 30 Nov. - 1 Dec. 2022, from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Eastern via Zoom. Registration for the course is $45 and comes with 14 continuing education credits. (Please note the refund and Continuing Education policies at the bottom of the page.) Space in this event is limited and registration will close when capacity is reached, even if this is before the final registration deadline.
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.
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, 2nd edition, by Foa, Hembree, Rothbaum, and Rauch (2019), published by Oxford University Press [ISBN: 978-0190926939].
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.
