Dr. Chard will teach you advanced techniques not covered in the 2-day basic training that create client buy-in and build engagement, reduce dropout, and how she works with flashbacks, dissociation, and other complications that could de-rail therapy.
In addition, she covers easy-to-implement strategies for managing avoidance, anger and staff splitting while staying in the CPT framework. This training also includes new, exclusive video demonstrations filmed at Dr. Chard’s clinic that demonstrate how to use CPT even when the session throws you a curve ball.
