Balancing your responsibilities in mental health care and family life is tough. Adding the need for additional training for licensure renewal can make it even more demanding. That’s why we offer a step-by-step Cognitive Processing Therapy certification online that’s available 24/7. This program consists of 12 self-paced lessons, covering numerous strategies to treat psychological trauma.
Discover more about how this Cognitive Processing Therapy training can be a valuable resource in your clinical practice.
Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) has long been recognized as an evidence-based therapy for the treatment of psychological trauma, and has even been declared a “best practice” for the treatment of PTSD by the International Society of Traumatic Stress Studies. However, CPT training is difficult to obtain outside of an agency setting, which limits many clinicians’ trauma treatment skillset. This two-day training introduces attendees to CPT, step-by-step, teaching each of the 12 CPT sessions. The cognitive skills taught in CPT, both alone and when integrated with other trauma treatment approaches, can facilitate fast recovery in some of your most traumatized clients. Don’t miss this rare training opportunity!
