Register Today! Narrative Exposure Therapy with Torture Survivors in Exile: Overview and Adaptations

NCB's Measured Impact Webinar: Wednesday, 8/21/19 from 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT. Click here to register.

This session, designed for psychotherapists, will present a brief theoretical and practical overview of Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET), which has emerged in recent years as a promising evidence-based treatment for PTSD in torture survivors. The presentation will assume familiarity and skill with exposure treatments and is designed for psychotherapists.  The overview will cover the theoretical background for NET, basic components of the method, and references for some of the current research supporting NET.  The remainder of the presentation will focus on the presenter’s clinical experience in adapting NET while adhering to its core principles, always integrating NET into a more comprehensive psychotherapy.  Drawing on the presenter’s experiences, she will emphasize NET’s strengths as a flexible, principle-based treatment that can outwardly look very different across individual clients and circumstances.
