Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Training for Caminante Staff

Dr. Norah Feeny, professor of psychology at Case Western Reserve University and an expert on cognitive-behavioral treatments for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder will provide training to the staff of Caminante on how to identify and treat PTSD.  The treatment manual for PTSD has already been translated into Spanish, better insuring that Dr. Feeny’s lessons will be maintained after her visit.  There will be two different training opportunities:  a focused series of sessions dedicated to working with trained clinicians who will be equipped by Dr. Feeny to deliver Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) treatments themselves.  In addition, there will be training delivered more generally to the Caminante staff.  The goal of these latter training sessions will be to enable the Caminante staff to identify the key symptoms of PTSD, so that they might make the proper referrals to clinicians who can further evaluate and respond to patient needs.  Dr. Feeny’s particular field of experience is in delivering CBT therapy to victims of sexual assault, so her work is of special significance to Caminante.
