Sorry, we are no longer accepting registrations for this course. Please contact our office to find out if it will be rescheduled, or if alternative classes are available.
This workshop is designed to provide an overview of Cognitive Processing Therapy for the treatment of trauma and PTSD. This 3 hour workshop will help clinicians get familiar with the process of CPT including psychoeducation, trauma processing, and evaluating and modifying beliefs related to trauma.
- Utilize psychoeducation to help clients gain a better understanding of trauma, normalize their experience/symptoms, and identify areas of non-recovery/stuck points.
- Develop a basic understanding of CPT treatment protocol, including assessments, handouts, scripts, and homework assignments.
- Learn to assess and challenge a client's beliefs surrounding the traumatic event.
Payment & Registration
- Payment is due upon registration. If a participant registers for a course and has not paid the registration fee, we will send a reminder email to pay the fee. If there is no response and the fee has not been paid within 7 days, the participant will be dropped from the course and may re-register and pay if space is available. This policy is to ensure equitable access to courses that have high demand and long waitlists.
