Dr. Geoff Ibbotson

Course Leader of Specialist Training in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder


Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a challenging but rewarding condition to treat as so many clients can be helped after only a few sessions using the techniques taught on this workshop. This course equips you with the tools that enable you to quickly and effectively help clients with PTSD and trauma related issues.

How This Training is Useful to You

PTSD is a condition that affects around 5% of men and 10% of women at some point in their life.

Within the emergency services the incidence of PTSD can be as high as 15 %. It was found that PTSD had an incidence of 23% four to six months following road traffic accidents in the UK and the incidence of PTSD was 27.5% in a study of patients who had had treatment in intensive care units compared with a prevalence in the general population of 2.7%.

The techniques for treating PTSD are also extremely effective for working with phobia issues due to many clients with phobias having had an adverse sensitising experience.
