June is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Month. Though we have come a long way in informing the public about PTSD, there is still plenty of work to do in this effort. The Center for Deployment Psychology provides information and training on the topic all year, but in June we make a special effort to highlight PTSD, resources, and evidence-based treatments.
This month, in addition to several blogs related to PTSD, we will also be offering a 90-minute webinar on "Addressing Guilt, Shame, and Anger in Three Different Models of PTSD Treatment. Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Written Exposure Therapy, and Brief Dynamic Therapy." In this panel discussion, subject matter experts will compare and contrast three different theoretical models for conceptualizing and addressing problems related to guilt, shame, and anger: Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Written Exposure Therapy, and Brief Dynamic Therapy. This discussion will be followed by commentary from David Riggs, Ph.D. Participants attend the webinar will be eligible to receive 1.5 free CEs. For more information or to register, click here.
Finally, for even more resources, we invite you to explore the PTSD Spotlight page here. There you will find a wealth of resources, links to upcoming training opportunities, blog entries, webinar recordings, and more. We hope you'll find these resources useful and we encourage you to share them with your peers!
