As the codeveloper of Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Kate Chard is altering the field of trauma treatment and what we know about how people recover from PTSD. Director of the Trauma Recovery Center at the Cincinnati VA, she’s written over 73 research papers on PTSD and trained thousands of clinicians in the use of this revolutionary approach. The author of CPT for Sexual Abuse Treatment Manual and coauthor of Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, she’s a professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Cincinnati.
In this address, she’ll discuss ways in which therapists can follow the research—instead of the hype—around trauma treatment, busting open the most common and pervasive myths that exist in the field today.
Please note this event will hold a simulcast for virtual attendees at the cost of $20.00.
