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 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.

Attendance at both days is required for course credit. This workshop is a prerequisite for becoming a CPT
provider. For more information on becoming a CPT Provider, please visit the website:
