Evidence Based Psychotherapies for Trauma and Disaster Survivors
February 1, 2016 @ 8:00 am - February 5, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
Studies worldwide indicate that 5% to 15% of people exposed to disasters are likely to develop post traumatic symptomatology, which affect daily functioning and well-being. There is a dire need to protect the well-being of affected populations and to provide psychological treatments for survivors of these disasters. Yet not all efforts are effective and beneficial, requiring a call for evidence – based treatments and interventions.
Involving case-studies, simulations, role-playing scenarios and psychodramas, this experiential, hand-on course enhances the clinical skills of participants. It will present a comprehensive multi-stage model approach for treating traumatized individuals experiencing post traumatic symptomatology.
Appropriate for those with background in counseling, clinical psychology and psychiatry with basic knowledge in psychotherapy and some experience in working with traumatized clients.
