Course Outline

   
   

Aims

   
This course offers a structured stepped intervention to support people who have experienced trauma in adulthood to manage the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Moving from initial interventions to help individuals process emotional responses without revisiting traumatic memories, and drawing on CBT models, you’ll learn a set of practical interventions to manage key symptoms of PTSD through grounding, reducing intrusive memories and flashbacks, overcoming avoidance and effective management of nightmares.    

Objectives

   
By the end of the course participants will have had opportunities to:
  • Describe how the brain processes trauma memories
  • Understand the difference between Acute Stress Disorder, PTSD and Complex PTSD
  • Support clients to safely process emotions related to PTSD
  • Provide a comprehensive six phase treatment intervention strategy
  • Implement strategies to reduce the impact of working with PTSD on the practitioner
