Sage Advice for Therapists New to Treating PTSD Clients with Dr. Frank Ochberg

Sage Advice for Therapists New to Treating PTSD Clients with Dr. Frank Ochberg

Frank Ochberg, MD highlights, on this CD, key elements for therapists to remember when treating those with PTSD or trauma symptoms. He also discusses differences between burn-out and compassion fatigue and how the therapist can recognize and prevent the effects of treating those with PTSD from disrupting their own health and their career. The advice is very practical for therapists. It provides a good road map along with other tools and resources that he suggests in the CD for guiding clients through the phases of treatment to successful outcomes.

Sage Advice for Therapists New to Treating PTSD Clients with Dr. Frank Ochberg

This is an engaging conversation rather than a dry lecture. Dr. Ochberg is a wise and refreshingly empathic clinical expert who has the rare capacity for speaking concisely on the management of the patient struggling with PTSD. The audio is filled with relevant, case-based information sophisticated enough for the student or the experienced clinician -- and basic enough for the person suffering from PTSD.
