Event Description

Master Series in Clinical Practice

Jointly sponsored by The Continuing Education Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Major Teaching Hospital of Harvard Medical School; Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute; and the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology.

The Master Series affords the chance to spend a complete day with leaders in our field to consider the unique perspective each speaker brings to the challenging dilemmas in both theory and practice. We hope that you will consider joining us for the entire series at a reduced tuition or choose the programs most relevant to your own practice.

Terence Keane, Ph.D., instructor

This program is designed for practitioners working with patients who have been exposed to life-threatening or traumatic events and who develop Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD is one of the most prevalent of all psychological disorders and is being more readily recognized in clinical practices worldwide. Participants will learn contemporary methods for assessing patients with PTSD and will also learn current models of psychotherapy for this debilitating condition. Didactics will comprise a portion of the workshop, yet case presentations will form a vital part of the presentation and considerable time will be devoted to methods and models for treating PTSD. Audience involvement and participation will be encouraged to draw upon the experiences of the more senior clinicians present. This presentation will focus on the presentation of evidence based approaches to assessment and treatment of PTSD.

Upon completion of the program, the student will be able to:

·         To learn the prevalence of exposure to traumatic events and the eventual development of PTSD.

·         To understand the various conceptual models currently employed to understand the development of PTSD and to guide treatment.

·         To learn about recent updates to the DSM criteria and methods to assess PTSD.

·         To understand the psychological treatment methods known to promote improvement for individuals with PTSD.

·         To equip oneself with treatment strategies and techniques to employ with PTSD patients.
