ROOM 710

Intensive Trauma Therapy (ITT) is a brief, time-limited, outpatient treatment program for trauma survivors. Through lecture, demonstrations, group discussions, and a hands-on component, this daylong Master Class will teach participants the essential tasks of trauma therapy and PTSD treatment. Specifically, two therapeutic procedures used in the ITT program will be presented and explored: Graphic Narrative Processing, and Externalized Dialogue. Participants will be guided through the process of these two methods, and learn how the sequential use of them can be an effective form of treatment for PTSD. This workshop is recommended for those with at least one year of clinical experience, and a previous class or workshop on the topic of trauma.

Eligible for 6.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
