Trauma Therapy in Context: The Science and Craft of Evidence-Based Practice

May 17, 2013 9:00 am -
May 17, 2013 4:30 pm

Event Description

PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE from April 26, 2013 to May 17, 2013

Robert McMackin, EdD and Jason Fogler, PhD, instructors

As researchers have developed increasingly effective interventions aimed at relieving trauma symp­toms, trauma therapists have come to understand that the success of these approaches is highly contingent on personal factors. Whether affected by natural disaster or sexual assault, by trauma-related symptoms like PTSD, substance abuse or depression, each victim of psychological trauma has undergone a uniquely personal experience. Recovery too is highly variable and deeply dependent upon an individual’s distinctive history and cultural context. This program examines several clinical and theoretical approaches to trauma-focused treatment and integrates these interventions into a broader clinical context and provides knowledge about how various approaches interact to inform a holistic understanding of trauma treatment. Emphasis will be placed on basic therapeutic skills, such as empathic listening, instilling resilience and creating meaning in the service of empirically-supported, highly efficacious trauma interventions. Throughout the program, there will be a focus on the real-life challenges that arise in typical therapy sessions to deepen our understanding and applica­tion of evidence-based interventions.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

·         Describe interventions aimed at relieving trauma symp­toms

·         Examine several clinical and theoretical approaches to trauma-focused treatment

·         Explore interventions in a broader clinical context and provide knowledge about how various approaches interact to inform a holistic understanding of trauma treatment

·         Discuss basic therapeutic skills, such as empathic listening, instilling resilience and creating meaning
