Wednesday 5 April 2017, 2pm – 3.30pm GMT, online
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can effect anyone who has experienced a traumatic event; it is therefore essential that full and correct support is offered. Attendees at this webinar will benefit from an exclusive ‘Meet the Expert’ session with a leading academic, who specialises in treating and diagnosing symptoms of PTSD. Content covered during this essential event will include an overview of the key signs and symptoms of PTSD and disenfranchised grief, in addition to an overview of the importance of early intervention.
Topics covered will include:
- A discussion of best practice guidelines for treatment, as recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence
- Details of common responses and reactions to a bereavement, and behaviours that can be expected from patients who have been suddenly bereaved
- An overview of the signs and symptoms of PTSD, and support methods that are recommended for professionals
- Signposting to a range of specialist services and organisations that are available for practitioners
Confirmed speakers for this event will be announced shortly.
Who should attend:
This event provides an essential development opportunity for all professionals supporting people who have been suddenly or traumatically bereaved. We would implore all counsellors, support workers and medical professionals to sign up for this crucial, free of charge webinar. This event is particularly beneficial for support workers who may be offering bereavement counselling, but do not have extensive experience in working with individuals who have experienced symptoms of disenfranchised grief or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
