Understanding Client PTSD: In Cross-Examination or Advocacy 

PTSD is at core the of many family, child safety, criminal and compensation claims.

This 1 hour live webinar will:

  • Assist legal practitioners to better understand the therapies their clients are receiving thus deepening their scope for cross-examination and advocacy for evidence-based orders.
  • Describe the key treatment techniques used to resolve PTSD symptoms;
  • Consider therapeutic approaches including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy; and
  • Examine case examples to outline barriers to best practice treatment and how those barriers may be overcome.
