A note from Kate Chard, co-developer of CPT….

More than 30 years ago, I worked with women who were survivors of rape. At this time, PTSD was considered a disorder of “non-recovery”. It became my mission to create a path forward to help these women get their lives back. I believed there had to be a better way to treat traumanon-pathologizing, person-centered, and highly effective.

I didn't know then that CPT would become one of the most evidenced-based therapies of all time — that works without asking your clients to retell or relive their trauma. And, it's shown to be just as effective with depression, anxiety, suicidality, dissociation, and more.

My pioneering work with CPT has given tens of thousands of therapists a structured, yet flexible approach to help their clients overcome trauma — with ease.

Join me and become part of an elite group of CPT-trained clinicians who not only free clients from trauma for the rest of their lives, but also elevate their careers as a go-to professional.

And, don't forget… this course includes live Q&A calls with me!

Yours in healing,
Kate Chard, PhD
