Dr. Philip Zimbardo: Treating PTSD with Time-Perspective Therapy

Have you wondered about your own perspective of time - and how it differs so often from others - most especially with your trauma clients?

In the treatment of PTSD, you know how the focus on past events is a key element that leaves the client stuck in the trauma experience. Now, there is an exciting treatment approach from Dr. Philip Zimbardo, internationally renowned scholar, educator, researcher and media personality.

Join Dr. Zimbardo (known to all in our field for The Stanford Prison Experiment) and journey with him into a new dimension of trauma therapy. After decades of research on Time Perspective, Dr. Zimbardo, along with colleagues Dr. Richard and Rosemary Sword, have developed Time Perspective Therapy (TPT).

Dr. Zimbardo delivers an engaging and rare 90-minute lecture about his research on the variations in time perspectives and the impact on human behavior, cognition, and culture including development of TPT and it’s treatment implications. He’ll also discuss new research and future directions in the field.
