Description

No therapist wants to make it worse.

So, you look for treatments that don’t bring up the details of their traumas, because then clients won’t have to think about it right?

But that’s kind of the whole problem…they CAN’T stop thinking about it. And avoiding it only reinforces the idea that the trauma is too overwhelming to confront.

Bringing it up, letting them talk about it, helping them to gain mastery over their story…these tools are EXACTLY what a client needs to finally put the past “behind them.”

Prolonged Exposure gives you these tools.

It’s a well-structured and evidence-based therapy PROVEN to guide clients through a gradual process of confronting and processing their traumatic memories in a safe and controlled environment.

And with studies showing up to 95% of clients lost their PTSD diagnosis at the end of treatment, it’s a must have for any trauma therapists’ toolbox.

Now in this comprehensive training you’ll watch PE expert Jennifer Northup who will show you how to use PE in a way that feels safe, effective and completely within your grasp.

With detailed session-by-session instruction, clinical insights and printable worksheets so you know exactly what to do, Jessica will give you everything you need to:

  • Know exactly when and with who, you should use PE
  • Confidently handle situations where clients become triggered
  • Keep clients coming back…even when it can get worse before it gets better
  • Reintroduce clients to things they may be avoiding
  • Safely approach these stimuli WITHOUT the fear of decompensation
  • Heal clients with the tools they need to tell their trauma story and gain mastery over it
  • And much more!

You’ll end this training ready to put your fears of “making it worse” aside and confidently use a proven approach that’s helped so many “make it so much better.”
