The onset of BPD often overlaps with the entry into college, as prevalence rates rise during puberty. Due to the disorder’s symptomatology, many students with this diagnosis may generate unusually complicated and concerning situations that college mental health clinicians may or may not feel equipped to handle.
There is an obvious need for college mental health clinicians to be able to detect, diagnose, and treat BPD in the students that they see.

This pre-conference workshop aims to provide didactic training in how to provide prolonged exposure (PE) therapy to patients with PTSD from various trauma histories. Prolonged exposure is an evidence-based psychotherapy for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), supported as a first-line intervention across PTSD treatment guidelines. Our goal is to provide the didactic portion of training in prolonged exposure therapy for licensed independent providers of psychotherapy. Proper training will allow for effective implementation, ultimately improving patient outcomes.
This training focuses on the theoretical and empirical basis for PE, detailed instructions on delivering the specific protocol components, role playing, videos, vignettes, and in-depth Q&A.
Participants will also receive instruction in the integration of basic therapy skills with protocol therapies, and the integration of technology and clinical care. Training will include the basics of how to do PE as well as additional information on how to tailor treatment to individual patient presentations. Focusing on treatment of PTSD while maintaining manual fidelity will be emphasized. Special attention will be devoted to implementing PE for PTSD when it presents along with other serious mental illnesses.
The target audience includes mental health professionals who are licensed independent providers of psychotherapy, including physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, and social workers.
At successful completion of the training, participants will be able to:
Attendees who complete this training are encouraged to obtain case consultation as they implement PE in practice.
