Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (TF-CBT) for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Workshop Date
Friday 21 September 2018, 9:00am to 12:00pm (registration from 8:30am)

This workshop will focus on working with traumatised adult individuals meeting criteria for PTSD. In particular, a review of assessment practices including an overview of current diagnostic criteria for Trauma and Stress-Related Disorders will be provided. Key issues that need to be considered in developing a treatment formulation such as selecting the most appropriate treatment in concordance with client goals will also be covered. A review of the current evidence based literature will be provided which supports the efficacy of trauma-focused Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (TF-CBT). Potential barriers to implementing evidence based TF-CBT will also be discussed. Given that TF-CBT involves a number of evidence based protocols, the focus of this workshop will be on presenting the evidence base on two specific protocols for treating PTSD: Prolonged Exposure (PE) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). A step by step tutorial will be provided in how to implement PE and CPT. The workshop will conclude with an overview of how to incorporate TF-CBT approaches with complex trauma.

Workshop Outcomes
1. Explain the features of PTSD and factor in differential diagnostic considerations in assessing clients and developing an evidence based treatment formulation in working with clients with PTSD.
2. Understand the current evidence based treatment for TF-CBT, and in particular, be able to explain the efficacy of both prolonged exposure (PE) treatment and cognitive processing therapy (CPT) for PTSD.
3. Be consciously aware of potential clinician factors and organisational and systemic barriers in implementing TF-CBT.
4. Understand and apply PE and CPT techniques in outpatient settings for individuals diagnosed with PTSD.
5. Know how to monitor and evaluate treatment progress and outcomes in implementing TF-CBT.
