DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.Workshop synopsisPTSD can arise after the experience of, and treatment for, critical illness – a timely issue given the current COVID-19 pandemic. Treatment in ICU is particularly high risk for PTSD, with approximately 25% of survivors developing PTSD. Besides being critically unwell and fearing they may die, ICU patients often experience delirium, characterised by acute confusion and often terrifying hallucinations. Psychological therapy for PTSD after these traumas can be complicated by various factors, including ongoing physical symptoms and avoidance of medical settings and professionals.This workshop will describe the features of PTSD after medically-related traumas and formulate them within the cognitive model of PTSD (Ehlers & Clark, 2000). Key cognitive therapy (CT) techniques will be described, demonstrated and workshop participants will have the opportunity to practise and apply them to their own clinical cases.Learning Outcomes - To understand PTSD following critical illness and ICU admission - To learn cognitive therapy (CT) techniques for PTSD - Participants will enhance their skills and learn to apply these to their own clinical cases.
