This evidence based, hands on, one day workshop
is directed at Health Care Professionals who wish to keep up to date with current trends, and work more effectively
with their clients and improve treatment outcome.
At this interactive workshop
Dr. Devilly will investigate the origins of trauma, overview the evolutionary relevance and look at the current research and efforts to categorize and differentiate trauma. Dr. Devilly will review present research
findings on areas of personal psychological disturbance for trauma clients and the high degree of co morbidity with other disorders. Dr. Devilly will offer an overview of the various treatment
options for post traumatic stress disorder, their similarities, differences and efficacy.
Dr. Devilly will then aim to equip all attendees with practical skills for resolving post traumatic stress disorder using exposure therapy. This will be done by a hands-on explanation of the
treatment process, using role plays, case studies and demonstrations. Dr. Devilly will discuss implications and obstacles of working in a multi cultural setting.
Plus strategies for working with clients who present with co-morbid issues such as drug use, mental health problems and trauma.
The integration of cognitive techniques into the practice of exposure therapy will also be addressed along with a review of current research on resilience training to trauma and, a model of intervention
for the the workplace.
