This popular workshop begins with a review of debriefing (i.e., interventions designed to prevent PTSD after a trauma), including insights from the lead presenter’s work with the Canadian government's National Roundtable in Ottawa. We then review a shortcut to the diagnosis of PTSD, proceeding from there to the details of (and controversies pertaining to) the fuller diagnostic criteria. The core of the workshop—training in treatment—emphasizes those tools realistic for use in primary care. As always, the assumption is a ten-minute appointment (with three patients in the waiting room). Special topics include the curious case of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), “emotional baggage” (i.e., old traumata), the eye-opening forgiveness research, so-called "hindsight bias", the Oprah-esque "imaginal rescripting", intergenerational trauma, the Faustian bargain of children who survived ACEs (adverse childhood experiences), complex PTSD (C-PTSD), trauma-informed care, and what data we have on medical marijuana. The workshop ends with a very uplifting topic: the emerging and exceedingly hopeful literature on post-traumatic growth.
Last-year conference gathered participants from 30 different countries. We want this conference to be a place where researchers from different parts of the world will connect, through the presentation of their research and discussion of current topics in the field of their interests. With this goal in mind, a unique Collaboration Hub session will be organized, where researchers will have the opportunity to present their projects, whose achievement requires expanding the network of collaborators beyond the borders of their country. For more information visit our website. Looking forwards to seeing you at our conference!
***NOTE: The new DSM-5-TR (released on March 18) refers to dysthymia as persistent depressive disorder.
The conference will focus on the issues such as social work experience during the crisis, development of social work education, creation of international educational standards in this field, social protection of vulnerable groups, etc.
