CPT Learning Collaborative

The purpose of a Learning Collaborative is to bring together a group of providers who share a foundational knowledge of trauma and cognitive theory and have an interest in serving adults who have experienced traumatic events. This Learning Collaborative will build on participants’ existing knowledge, as well as introduce new learning and activities to enhance clinical skills essential in serving this population with skill and fidelity.

The purpose of this training is to provide participants with knowledge and skills to implement Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT); an evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). CPT has been endorsed by the Institute of Medicine as a first line treatment for PTSD, and related disorders, with individuals who have experienced all types of trauma including sexual assault, accidents, natural disasters and combat. This learning collaborative will include a 2 Day Intensive Training with didactic presentation, role-plays and videos to ensure the participants understand the theory, research and session by session information needed to conduct CPT. Following the 2 Day Training 20 group consultation calls will be conducted.
