Due to changes in law, and shifting attitudes about marijuana, marijuana use has substantially increased over the past few years. Many clinicians wonder, “What’s the impact of marijuana use on PTSD, and importantly, on trauma therapy efficacy?” This 2-CE seminar provides an overview of the effects of marijuana on the brain, how it may affect trauma symptoms, and the impact it’s having on psychotherapy. Given the mainstream use of marijuana, an understanding of how marijuana use can impact trauma and stressor-related disorder symptoms and treatment is critical for mental health professionals!
