CPT is an effective cognitive behavioural treatment for PTSD with a focus on assisting a client to process and modify their beliefs related to the traumatic event.


If you are looking to learn an evidence-based therapy for PTSD, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) offers an alternative to exposure-based therapy.


With the aid of expert video demonstrations and skills rehearsal, this interactive training program consists of a two-day workshop and three follow-up consultations. This will give you the skills and confidence to deliver CPT to people affected by a wide range of traumatic events. A comprehensive treatment manual* including client handouts is provided.
