Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) for posttraumtic stress disorder (PTSD) is one of the most effective treatments for PTSD currently available. However, given the vast research literature supporting PE, providers are still difficult to find and reluctance to deliver an exposure based treatment for trauma survivors persists. This webinar provides a brief review of the research supporting PE, discusses how to decide who is a good candidate for PE, and what a typical course of PE would involve. Using PE with special populations, such as those who are substance abusers or have other comorbidities, is also discussed.
- Gain a better understanding of the research supporting PE.
- Know which people are most appropriate to receive PE.
- Learn about the main components of PE and the order of their delivery.
- Be able to determine when to implement PE in clients with multiple presenting problems.
