Research Webinar: Navigating Common Challenges in Prolonged Grief Treatments

November 11 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | ONLINE ONLY (VIA ZOOM) | REGISTRATION REQUIRED | 1 CE AVAILABLE FOR A FEE

Although Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) are considered first-line evidence-based treatments for PTSD and form the underpinnings of PGDT, research indicates an underutilization of these protocols in routine clinical practice. The goal of this presentation is to improve therapists’ self-efficacy when providing these trauma-focused therapies by enhancing their ability to recognize and respond to various clinical challenges. Perceived barriers to selecting and progressing these treatments will be reviewed. Implementation challenges common across both protocols as well as unique to each treatment will be highlighted. Practical strategies for addressing these issues in the context of maintaining treatment fidelity will be discussed. Key resources to support the delivery of PE and CPT when working with individuals with PTSD will be included.
