Treating Trauma: A Practical, Evidence-Based Approach
Presented by Martha Teater, MA, LMFT on 08-28-2015 at 9 a.m. Pacific to 11 a.m. Pacific (2 p.m. Eastern)
Whether or not you consider yourself a trauma specialist, you probably treat people who have experienced trauma. Most people seeking counseling have been through some extremely challenging events. What evidence-based practices will you use to intervene with these people?
In this web conference you will learn practical tools that will make you more effective in treating trauma. You’ll find out what works and what doesn’t work. We’ll review approaches that have earned top marks for their powerful impact on people. We’ll also cover:
- The new DSM-5 category called "Trauma and Stressor-Related Disorders," which includes a new diagnosis of Disinhibited Social Engagement Disorder and a new symptom cluster for PTSD, negative alterations in cognitions, and mood.
- Large "T" and small "t" trauma: What they are and why it matters.
- Trauma assessment: What tools best meet your needs?
- Risk factors and protective factors: Learn what raises and what lowers risk and how protective factors offset risk factors.
- The three-stage consensus model: How to use this as a strategic approach to treatment.
- Stress inoculation and its applicability in your practice.
- Psychological first aid (PFA): The new first-line intervention with people in the immediate aftermath of trauma.
- Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT): A highly effective form of therapy to use with children, teens, and their families.
- The Adverse Childhood Experiences study (ACE): What it teaches us about the long-term consequences of traumatic exposure in childhood.
- Trauma and substance use disorders: How they are related and how to treat them using an integrated approach.
This intermediate instructional level web conference is designed to help clinicians:
- Accurately diagnose trauma-related disorders using the DSM-5.
- Analyze risk factors and protective factors that influence the impact of trauma on a person.
- Examine the long-term consequences of traumatic experiences in childhood.
- Describe the relationship between trauma and substance use disorders.
