Prolonged Exposure: Helping Clients Recover from PTSD

Join Illume: The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence  on Tuesday, October 4th from 8:30 a.m.- 12:30p.m. (Central) in person at Places for People. 

Behavioral health professionals may apply for 4 CEUs.

Description:

Data shows that up to 60% of the US population is exposed to at least one traumatic event in their lifetime.  While many recover naturally, up to 10% of people will go on to develop Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following a traumatic event.  Fortunately, decades of research have shown that Prolonged Exposure (PE) is a highly effective treatment for PTSD.  However, despite its effectiveness, many therapists’ express concerns about utilizing PE with their clients.

This training is presented by Emily Dreher, LPC, NCC, DBT-LC. In this training, you will receive an overview of the underlying theories and procedures of Prolonged Exposure, identify individuals who may benefit from the treatment, and debunk myths about exposure treatment for PTSD.
