Speaker: Kathleen M. Chard, Ph.D.
Dr. Chard will be presenting a two-day workshop on Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), a cognitive-behavioral treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). CPT was developed in the late 1980s and has been shown to be effective in reducing PTSD symptoms related to a variety of traumatic events including child abuse, combat, rape and natural disasters. CPT is endorsed by the U.S. Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense, as well as the International Society of Traumatic Stress Studies, as a best practice for the treatment of PTSD. This two-day workshop will include information on the background and research on CPT. This workshop is a prerequisite to becoming a CPT Provider. For more information on becoming a CPT Provider, please visit the website: CPTforPTSD.com
Dr. Chard is the Associate Chief of Staff for Research, Director of Trauma Recovery Center at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center and Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Cincinnati. Dr. Chard is the author of the Cognitive Processing Therapy for Sexual Abuse treatment manual and is co-author of the CPT: Military/Veteran manual. In addition, Dr. Chard oversees the dissemination of CPT to VA and Department of Defense clinicians across the United States and Canada. Dr. Chard is an Associate Editor of the Journal for Traumatic Stress and she is an active researcher. She has conducted several funded studies on the treatment and etiology of PTSD and comorbid TBI. She is currently Co-Chair of the 17-site VA study comparing CPT and Prolonged Exposure.
