Trauma Focused Cognitive Therapy for PTSD

Go Back


This workshop presents the Ehlers and Clark (2000) cognitive model for PTSD and the effective treatment that is derived from it. The treatment focuses in three key areas: addressing the nature of the trauma memory; tackling negative appraisals and meanings; and developing more helpful coping strategies, overcoming avoidance. The memory-focused techniques include reliving/exposure, written narratives, stimulus discrimination, and site visits. Overcoming the obstacles that both patients and therapists present to using these highly effective techniques will be addressed. The timing of such techniques within an overall treatment programme will be discussed. Some of the specific cognitive approaches to working with post-trauma emotional and cognitive themes are highlighted. These include overgeneralized threat, permanent change, and meanings associated with the emotions of shame, guilt and anger. The assessment and treatment of Complex PTSD will also be addressed in this context.
