Registration closes - Midday on Thursday 5 September. Places are limited though so book early to avoid disappointment!

This online workshop will describe in detail the cognitive model of PTSD on which the various types of trauma-focused CBTs are based. The model will then be used to consider 
how children, young people, and their families react to traumatic events, with a particular emphasis on PTSD (both ICD-11 and DSM-5) and Complex PTSD. The workshop will give a better understanding of how PTSD develops and is maintained and how TF-CBT can be used to help those affected.

Throughout the training, clinical examples and formulations will be used to illustrate how the model and skills can be put into practice. There will also be opportunities for questions and discussions as a whole group, as well as some small group discussions.

This event is suitable for any practitioners working with children and young people who have a basic understanding of CBT.

By the end of the workshop attendees will:
1. Understand the cognitive model of PTSD with particular reference to children and young people 
2. Be familiar with the diagnostic criteria for PTSD 
3. Understand how to provide an intervention based on the cognitive model of PTSD
