Abstract in Undetermined

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is the one of the most common reactions arising in the aftermath of traumatic events. PTSD is characterised by frequent and intrusive recollections of the event, emotional restriction and avoidance, and hyper arousal. Many clients also develop dysfunctional beliefs about their own PTSD symptoms, which in turn cause increased levels of impairment. Untreated, PTSD can become a chronic and debilitating condition affecting all aspects of functioning (social, family life, school, and health), and places the individual at high risk for the development of depression, anxiety disorders, and substance abuse.

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a rapid and effective treatment method designed to promote long-term symptom reduction, positive coping, and improved self-esteem. It is based on a collaborative and empirically driven approach to change. As taught here, CBT involves the use of trauma narratives, imaginal and in-vivo exposure, cognitive restructuring, and anxiety management techniques. Research with traumatised adults and children strongly suggest that CBT is the first-line treatment for PTSD.

The aims of this one-day workshop are to introduce participants to the Cognitive-Behavioural Model of PTSD and its treatment, the literature demonstrating its effectiveness in children, and developing the skills necessary for working effectively with traumatized clients. A combination of didactic teaching, case demonstration and discussion, and role-play will be used to increase participants’ CBT skill levels. The latest cognitive approaches to PTSD in children will be covered during this course.
