The Center for Deployment Psychology will be presenting a two-day course in the use of Prolonged Exposure Therapy on 6-7 October 2021, 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Eastern. 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 participate in the role-play sessions. Headphones are also HIGHLY recommended to provide the optimal experience.
This intensive two-day module provides training in Prolonged Exposure (PE) Therapy, an evidence-based treatment for PTSD described in the manual, Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD – Therapist Guide, 2nd Edition, by Foa et al., 2019. It covers the empirical and theoretical support for 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.
System Requirements: This course will be presented via Zoom teleconferencing software. Participants will not have to install any additional programs on their computer to take part. However, a web browser is necessary. (Mac users are recommended to use the Chrome or Firefox browsers to minimize tech issues). Participants can test their computer's capabilities by clicking here (or visiting http://zoom.us/test). We recommend all participants test their ability to load Zoom in advance of the event to ensure there are no technical difficulties. All participants must log in via an individual connection, rather than as a group using one machine. A headset/headphones are recommended.
A functioning microphone is also MANDATORY to attend this training, to allow for participation in role-play sessions.
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.
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).
