Staff Perspective: New EBP Video Section

We here at the Center for Deployment Psychology are excited to unveil the new Evidence-Based Psychotherapies video section on our website. As part of our multi-day EBP training events, we use many videos to demonstrate a variety of techniques. One of the most common request we receive is participants wanting the opportunity to watch these videos again afterwards to help reinforce the concepts. Now those interested can watch (and re-watch) all these video demonstrations whenever they want. 

Guest Perspective: Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) in a VA Hospital Setting - Findings and Observations

I have been training providers in Prolonged Exposure therapy (PE) and collecting outcome data for the past seven years.  Since I arrived at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center, I have been involved in the training of approximately 45 clinicians in PE and collected outcomes for over 300 cases.  And while what follows is certainly not an exhaustive list of factors to consider in providing PE to a Veteran population, it does represent a convergence of my clinical observations and our empirical findings.  With that stated, my findings and observations in providing PE to veterans are:  1) therapist experience matters; 2) service-connection is an important issue; and 3) not enough attention is paid to safety behaviors.

Staff Perspective: Review of Exposure Therapy for Anxiety: Principles and Practice

I read this book because I thought I might like to recommend it to new therapists who are just learning exposure techniques. I actually found that it has a much broader range than that. As it turns out, this is a solid and comprehensive review of the behavioral principles of exposure therapy and a pretty fantastic guide to implementation of exposure with a wide variety of anxious patients.

Staff Perspective: Summer Vacation: The Benefits of “Exposure”

For most of us, summer conjures up the idea of vacation. Rather than thinking of vacation as only a time for leaving behind something stressful or routine, I have come to see it as an opportunity for proactively adding to my treasure chest through real life exposures. Yes, the kind we refer to in Prolonged Exposure (PE) Therapy.

Staff Perspective: What Makes a Good Metaphor in Prolonged Exposure Therapy?

Across multiple PE training workshops at which I’ve presented, we’ve discussed the importance of helping our patients understand various aspects of treatment such as rationale, procedures, the nature of the therapeutic relationship, using metaphors. A colleague and I recently discussed the use of metaphor in PE, and shared many of the metaphors we use in treatment.  We realized that many new PE therapists might benefit from considering a wide range of metaphors that could be used in PE treatment, so we present to you several PE metaphors for your consideration.
