Teaching and supervision

We offer workshops and courses on many aspects of treating PTSD. Recent topics include:

  • Behavioural experiments in PTSD - the what, how and when

  • Integrating and optimising imagery rescripting in PTSD treatment

  • PTSD following critical illness and ICU admission

As well as one-off teaching events, we have also provided tailored packages of training and supervision to services to 'top-up' their PTSD skills, particularly regarding complexity.
