Best Practices in Responding to Trauma and PTSD
Friday, March 31, 2023, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT
Category: CE Events: Adult Individuals

In this training, we will differentiate between the diagnosis of PTSD and Acute Stress Disorder. Participants will learn what leads an individual to develop PTSD and what helps foster resilience. We will discuss common co-occurring diagnoses and how to distinguish these presentations from PTSD. Participants will learn how to complete an assessment for PTSD and will be provided with an overview of the various evidence-based treatment models for treating PTSD. The trainers will teach a variety of “in the moment” strategies that practitioners can use with individuals who are experience active symptoms of PTSD and acute stress. Participants will have opportunities to practice these strategies in the training. Finally, the trainers will address vicarious trauma in the practitioner and the importance of developing and maintaining self- care when working with individuals who have experienced trauma.
