Our 2 Day PTSD Master Class draws on recent research findings in neuroscience, the clinical model of Ehlers and Clark and eighteen years post qualification experience.
PTSD Master Class will offer participants a firm foundation for working with PTSD using Trauma-Focused CBT, underpinned by a relational philosophy.
Current theories of PTSD, updates in neuroscience and the role of memory processes in the maintenance of PTSD will be explored, along with case formulation and therapy.
PTSD Master Class is highly practical, with clinical demonstration using live actor and video footage to model skills. We offer a stop & pause format so that delegates can stop, discuss, and pull open the clinical decision-making steps at each stage of the therapy process. The “actor as client” process brings life-like and safer skills practice into the workshop. This process offers unique hands-on training for professionals with solid theory to practice transfer.15-24 Jun 2017: British Psychological Society London Office
