Watch Don Meichenbaum, Ph.D. for this unique personal session. He will explain in what way CBT is evolving, and how to get patients to conquer post traumatic growth. You cannot cure PTSD, nothing will take away the pain, but how you help your patients develop a life worth living and residence is the key. Learn from his own clinical experiences and how he treated PTSD through CBT.

Don will explain his “Clock Metaphor” when trying to get patients to explain their traumatic event:

  • Triggers: External or Internal
  • Emotions: Primary and Secondary
  • Schemas and Beliefs
  • Behavior: What did you do?

Listen as he explains about mistakes made with clients and lessoned learned. Leave with four elements advice that every clinician must know!
