This workshop will include training in individually administered CPT with either the standard 12-session protocol or a variable length course of treatment. Dr. Resick will include video examples and roleplays in the workshop.

A free 10 module online course is available for those who would like to acquaint themselves with CPT before or after the training at


Participants will be able to:
  • Describe a functional model of PTSD
  • Demonstrate the difference between assimilation, accommodation and overaccommodation
  • Describe the format and goals for each CPT treatment session
  • Describe common PTSD client “stuck points”
  • Demonstrate Socratic dialogue to challenge stuck points
