Meditation in Treating PTSD

$3.00 | CE Hours:1.00 | Intermediate

 

CE Course Description

Evidence-based psychotherapies (EBPs), such as Prolonged Exposure and Cognitive Processing Therapy, are generally the first-line interventions for PTSD.  Unfortunately, many Veterans still have diagnosable PTSD following EBPs or prefer to try other strategies.  This CE course explores ways to supplement existing treatments, reduce barriers to engagement in EBPs, and provide alternative for individuals who are affected by PTSD.
