Trauma is one of the most critical medical / psychological problems in the US and around the world. The symptoms can be devastating.
In this workshop, Dr. Burns will describe a new treatment approach called TEAM-CBT. TEAM-CBT is based on research on how psychotherapy actually works and addresses many of the shortcomings in traditional CBT.
TEAM-CBT offers rapid, profound, and lasting clinical change.
In this exciting workshop, you will learn practical methods you can use right away in your clinical work. Although the focus of the workshop will be on the treatment of clients who have experienced severe traumas, you will find that the techniques will dramatically improve your effectiveness with all your depressed and anxious clients.
Have you also experienced trauma? Do you sometimes struggle with feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt? The segments on personal healing
will deepen your understanding of TEAM-CBT and help you develop greater self-esteem, confidence, and joy in your clinical work and in your personal life as well.
