Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Trauma exposure is prevalent both among veterans and in the community at large. To effectively provide mental health services to adults, practicing clinicians must have a working knowledge of trauma assessment measures and of effective treatments for trauma-related symptoms.

This workshop will address assessment techniques, ranging from semi-structured clinical interviews to self-report measures. We will highlight significant changes in diagnostic criteria from DSM-IV-TR to DSM-V, along with the implications for assessment. Participants will review the evidence-based, recovery-focused treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder, including Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure. Issues of cultural diversity and considerations for special populations, including veterans, will be discussed.

The workshop will be comprised of lecture, discussion in break-out groups, and clinical application exercises. Participants will be introduced to on-line resources to augment workshop content.

Class size is limited to 30.
