Presenter: Dr Leah Giarratano
Therapy for survivors of complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder should be, at least initially, different to treatment for sufferers of PTSD, as defined by DSM 5.
This presentation will outline best-practice treatment for these two different clinical populations in order to maximise treatment success and minimise risk of re-traumatisation for your clients.
We will also discuss Traumatisation and personality disorders.
Presenter: Dr Leah Giarratano is a registered clinical psychologist and an author of fiction and nonfiction books.
As a psychologist she has substantial expertise in the assessment and treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and complex traumatisation, working in this area since 1995.
Where: Relationships Australia. 159 St Pauls Terrace, Spring Hill
