CBT for PTSD training

CBT for PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).

CBT for PTSD training is an APT-Accredited 3-day course from one of Canada's leading providers of CBT training courses. We bring the training to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (2-day version and refresher courses are also available.)

Executive Summary:

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is an interesting, complex, and often devastating syndrome which may affect people who have been through a major traumatic event. It causes significant distress / impairment in social, occupational or other areas, and persists for a long time, sometimes a whole lifetime.

The person may re-experience the event, by images, thoughts, or dreams. They may have intense distress and reactivity to cues that symbolise the traumatic event. They may avoid stimuli associated with the trauma, and be unable to recall important aspects of it. Loss of interest in previously important activities is common. They may feel detached from others and be unable to have loving feelings. They may be unable to see a future for themselves, have difficulty falling or staying asleep, be irritable and have outbursts of anger, have difficulty concentrating, be 'always on the lookout for another disaster', and be very easily and exaggeratedly startled. It is therefore unsurprising that this is a very distressing condition both for the sufferer and those around him or her.

Option 2: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
