This workshop taught me how to motivate, support and enable my PTSD clients to process traumatic experiences. I appreciated the great organisation of the workshop! Getting to hear the world leading expert in trauma treatment, share a lifetime of research based experience about "what not to do, what to do & how to do it " - absolutely priceless!

5/5

I learned a lot from this workshop: not to be afraid to try new stuff, to be more structured and coherent when doing treatment. And to be more specific; how to work with the SUD's-scale, how to phrase certain parts of the rationale and psychoed. In all; I feel more secure about what I already do, and also in what parts I want to progress in.

I appreciated all the knowledge and facts given to us, combined with exercises and small movies of the patients. Very helpful. Well organised! I learned a structured method how to help and deal with people that suffer from PTSD. Step by step and very clear. What stands out for me is that this method has a lot of studies with evidence that it works for the majority. This gives a strength and security for the therapist towards the patient and the method.

I am blown away by how well it worked to attend this workshop online. The organisation of this just made this a smooth and welcoming experience. I was so grateful for the opportunity to learn from and interact with Dr. Foa and Dr. Capaldi. I feel much more confident now with my PTSD clients and I learned a lot in this training. I appreciate all the materials we were given and the opportunity to practice and get direct feedback from Dr. Foa.
