Working Effectively With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Date: 18 May 2017 - 20 May 2017

Malaysia, Selangor, Petaling Jaya

This workshop is intended to be a primary forum for understanding and practicing about counselling with clients who have suffered from traumatic events , as well as those who have not been successfully integrating the experiences and returning to stability.

Over the course of the three days, participants will become familiar with the full range of signs and symptoms of post-traumatic reactions to stress – beyond those used in DSM and ICD-10 diagnostic criteria – and will receive a copy of the "Downs Post-Traumatic Stress Scale" for use in the clinic.

An overview of the context of therapeutic response to trauma will be supplemented with films of live sessions with clients suffering from post-traumatic effects. Participants will be introduced to specific skill sets required to meet moments of client crisis and will have opportunities to practice and then to debrief those skills practice sessions in the workshop as a means of integrating skills and discussing counselling issues that arise.
