5 sessions or less. That might be all you have to make a difference in the lives of many clients.
Between the anguish of verbalizing the details of their traumas, and lengthy treatments that can take months or years to conclude, nearly a third drop out of therapy prematurely. You need a more rapid and tolerable treatment option!
Written Exposure Therapy (WET) is an evidence-based brief PTSD treatment approach that produces clinically significant reductions in PTSD symptoms in as few as five treatment sessions by having clients write about the trauma. It’s efficient, effective, associated with low treatment dropout rates, and has been found to be equally effective as more time intensive therapies – all without requiring clients to verbalize the details of their traumas again and again.
This one-day seminar is led by Dr. Denise Sloan and Dr. Brian Marx, developers of the Written Exposure Therapy protocol and authors of Written Exposure Therapy for PTSD: A Brief Treatment Approach for Mental Health Professionals published by the American Psychological Association.
Watch them as in just one day, they provide you with the training and tools you need to start using WET in your practice immediately! Purchase now and get:
