Written Exposure Therapy (WET) for PTSD: A Brief Evidence-Based Treatment for Reduced Dropouts and Improved Outcomes in Fewer Sessions

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.

Trauma-Related Dissociation and Dissociative Disorders: Assessment and Treatment Strategies for Some of the Most Misunderstood Disorders in the DSM

You work with trauma to make a difference.

But developmental trauma and disorganized attachment have profoundly negative effects on those who experience them -- and the signs and symptoms of dissociation can be difficult to recognize, even for clinicians.

And many people with trauma-related dissociation and dissociative disorders actively work to hide their struggles; stigma and shame driving their secrecy and barring them from sharing the full extent of their distress with you. Frightened and confused, many become “revolving door” patients, in and out of the mental health system when the root of their problems can’t be identified.

They are in desperate need of your help.

This recording will prepare you to effectively meet the clinical challenges involved in identifying and treating individuals across the dissociative spectrum.

Key Benefits:

Don’t miss out on this chance to add valuable skills and tools to your trauma practice and ensure those seeking your help don’t become “revolving door” patients.

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Demonstrate how the relationship between developmental trauma and dissociation can inform clinical assessment and diagnosis of dissociative disorders.
  2. Articulate how the clinician can reduce the possibility of countertransference by regulating their reactions in-session.
  3. Design treatment plans that ground dissociative clients with relaxation techniques and mindfulness.
  4. Analyze the clinical implications of suicidal alters and connect this information to techniques that can help prevent and manage suicidal crises in severely dissociated clients.
  5. Develop strategies for integrating support systems into the lives of clients with Dissociative Identity Disorder, and communicate how this approach can improve treatment outcomes.
  6. Formulate treatment plans for trauma that are individualized to clients with dissociative disorders
