Program Description

This trauma education program synthesises practical approaches from several modalities that are publishing positive outcomes for these clients and presents them using actual cases that will underpin your clinical practice in traumatology. The content is applicable to both adult and adolescent populations. The techniques are designed for immediate use in your clinical practice. The program will explain when exposure-based interventions are indicated and appropriate, and when other therapeutic needs should be addressed first.

Day 1-2 is dedicated to treating PTSD clients utilising a cognitive behavioural approach. Day 3-4 is dedicated to the treatment of Complex PTSD (survivors of child abuse and neglect/ developmental trauma) incorporating current experiential techniques showing promising results with this population; drawn from Emotion Focused Therapy for trauma, Metacognitive Therapy, Schema Therapy, Attachment pathology treatment, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.

Please refer to the descriptions provided for Treating PTSD with Dr Leah Giarratano (Day 1-2) and for Treating Complex Trauma with Dr Leah Giarratano (Day 3-4) at our website for further details regarding this four-day training.

What past participants have said about this self-paced online program

I appreciated the variety of skills and theoretical orientations included and enjoyed the way multiple approaches were drawn together into an eclectic approach

I loved the eclectic mix of strategies used in the CPTSD workshop and furthering my understanding of the treatment of trauma. Content was very engaging, case presentations helped to apply skills and Leah was very clear.

This was the most informative and useful training I have done in a long time. The mix of theory training and practical application was spot on. Brilliant program.

Fantastic workshop. The program was well structured. Leah provided a thorough understanding of the material and this was supported by research and case studies.

Thank you for sharing your expertise, knowledgebase and practise material. I will be recommending this course and resources to my colleagues.

This was an outstanding workshop! The blend of clinical experience, with research knowledge was fantastic. Very practical – will draw on these concepts/tools often and highly recommend this workshop to others.

Extremely informative, useful, interactive and engaging, and beautifully presented. Ten out of ten. Recommend thoroughly.

Unlike other courses that often provide only theory and background, and you leave disappointed, this workshop is practical and has a good balance of information and theory but lots of takeaway skills that are shown, explained and practised. Best CPD I’ve ever done.

I tell all my colleagues that this is 5-star training. There’s great coverage of information. I recommend both of Leah’s programs to everyone. I’ve found that I learn even more by re-reading through the thorough notes provided.
