Detailed Description

Treating PTSD with a Personalised Approach to Evidence-Based Therapy

Presenter: Tara Galovski

Date: Tuesday 1st March 2022



This event is only open to those who supervise for the DClin programme at the University of Bath


This workshop seeks to explore personalized approaches to clinical care for PTSD. The challenges of implementing evidence-based and manualized treatments across culturally diverse trauma populations will be reviewed. Recent clinical trials that have tested modified  approaches to Cognitive Processing Therapy will be presented to illustrate empirically supported ways that manualized therapy can be flexibly administered to optimize outcomes for different types of patient populations. Attention will be paid to reducing the inherent risks to fidelity to manualized protocols and avoiding inadvertent dilution of the efficacy of the treatment with modifications. Therapists will be invited to describe culturally diverse and complicated cases from their own clinical experiences and attendees will work together to apply a personalized approach to navigating clinically complex cases with evidenced-based, manualized therapy protocols.
