Cognitive Processing Therapy is one of the leading therapies for the treatment of PTSD and trauma. In numerous research studies, CPT has been shown to have the same effectiveness of EMDR and Prolonged Exposure therapies.
We will be offering a 2 day intensive workshop for clinicians on Cognitive Processing Therapy. Over 2 days, you will learn the principles, theory, and structure of this 12 session protocol. CPT can be offered in both individual and group formats.
Flourish Counseling & Mental Wellness Center is pre-authorized by the Texas Licensing Boards for LMFTs, LPCs, and Social Workers for CEUs. 12 CEUs can be earned for this workshop.
Dr. Candice Ackerman, a licensed psychologist, will be teaching this workshop. Dr. Ackerman previously worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs where she used both CPT and Prolonged Exposure to help Veterans with combat-related PTSD and military sexual trauma. She continues to use these therapies in her private practice work at Flourish with civilian clients.
The workshop will take place on September 16th and 17th (Saturday/Sunday), from 9am to 5pm. This workshop is $250 per participant, payable by cash, check, or credit card. There will be 6 hours of lectures and activities per day for you to master this protocol and the basic techniques of CPT. You will be given 1 hour for lunch (on your own) and multiple breaks throughout the day with refreshments provided.
Workshop is capped at 20 clinicians. To sign up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions about the training can be directed to Dr. Ackerman at email@example.com
