The Centre for Posttraumatic Stress & Anxiety Treatment is pleased to announce a four-day intensive online training workshop in Prolonged Exposure (PE) Therapy for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.

PE is a manualized cognitive-behavioural treatment for PTSD with an extensive base of empirical support.

PE is strongly recommended by every major U.S. and international clinical practice guideline for the treatment of PTSD.

Topics covered:

• Assessment, diagnosis and psychopathology of PTSD;
• Empirically-supported psychotherapeutic treatments for chronic PTSD and their comparative efficacy;
• Emotional Processing Theory and its relation to PE;
• Implementation of the components of PE, including psychoeducation, breathing retraining, in vivo exposure to trauma reminders, imaginal exposure to trauma memories, and processing of exposures;
• Identification and management of obstacles to effective emotional processing, including avoidance, over-engagement, and under-engagement;

Video vignettes will illustrate the various components of PE, and participants will have an opportunity to practice selected interventions in pairs during break-out sessions.

Intended audience:
Licensed mental health professionals or those working under the supervision of a licensed mental health professional. Previous training and experience with cognitive-behavioural therapy is advised.

Assessment & Treatment of Suicidal & Self-Injurious Behaviours Workshop
Location: Zoom
Contact Phone Number: (604) 569-1156
Contact E-Mail: info@dbtvancouver.com
Event Link: https://dbtvancouver.com/our-events/assessment-treatment-of-suicidal-and-self-injurious-behaviours/

Presented by: Alexander L. Chapman, Ph.D., R.Psych., and John Wagner, Ph.D., R.Psych.

Dates: Friday, October 28, + Friday, November 4, 2022
Time: 9:00am – 4:30pm PDT both days (11:00am – 6:30pm CDT / 12pm – 7:30pm EDT)
Location: Zoom

In this workshop, we will review effective strategies to assess and treat suicidal and self-injurious behaviours. We will start by reviewing what we know about suicidal and self-injurious behaviours (i.e. research and theory). Using principles and practices informed by dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT; Linehan, 1993), we will then review effective strategies to assess and conceptualize risk as well as to manage and treat people struggling with these problems. Some of the core assessment and treatment strategies will include conducting effective DBT chain analyses, addressing and solving problems contributing to suicidal and self-injurious behaviours, and coaching in certain DBT skills (e.g., distress tolerance skills) to help clients manage emotions and resist self-injury or suicidal behaviour.

$504 + GST – professional rate
$399 + GST – student rate
