Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD for Veterans and Military Service Personnel

 

Most individuals who have been exposed to a potentially traumatic event, such as sexual assault/abuse, physical assault/abuse, natural disasters, motor vehicle accidents, and combat, are able to recover naturally. Others, however, get “stuck” at some point during the recovery process and develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This course is designed for behavioral and mental healthcare providers who work with survivors of trauma. In fact, understanding and exhibiting competence in working with symptomatic trauma survivors is a critical skill for clinicians. In this course, you will be introduced to one of the most effective treatments for individuals who have PTSD, called Prolonged Exposure therapy (PE). Based on the work of Dr. Edna Foa and her colleagues, this course provides an overview of the theory behind, and empirical support for, Prolonged Exposure therapy. Through a series of interactive exercises and case studies, you will learn about PE and how it works to help individuals who have PTSD.

Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD for Veterans and Military Service Personnel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
