Adapting PTSD treatment for populations exposed to frequent work-related trauma

Do you work with clients who are frequently exposed to trauma in their workplace? Come and hear about some of the specific issues facing them.

REGISTRATION FROM 6:30pm for a 7pm start.

In fields such as the emergency services, military and journalism some people are frequently exposed to disaster, serious injury, death and violence as a regular part of their duties. These populations have a heightened susceptibility to PTSD but are often not help-seeking and when they do they can be difficult to keep engaged in treatment. Whilst traditional trauma-focussed CBT strategies including cognitive therapy, in vivo and imaginal exposure are still effective in treating these populations some adjustments to treatment may boost treatment outcomes.

This presentation will examine some of the specific issues facing individuals who are frequently exposed to trauma in the workplace, such as managing organisational stressors, dealing with the shame associated with treatment seeking and working with multiple comorbidities. Modifications to typical trauma-focussed CBT to enhance treatment engagement will also be discussed, with a particular focus on working with imaginal exposure in the context of exposure to multiple traumas.

A pub discussion is a relaxed opportunity to observe a presentation on an interesting topic regarding cognitive behavioural therapy. There are opportunities for the willing to engage in a discussion relating to the topic towards the end of the presentation.
