Online Therapy and Emotional Training for PTSD
A training program in online therapy and the treatment of trauma (OTPTSD)
Course Director: Dror Green, Ph.D
In the last 15 years online psychotherapy has become a legitimate branch of psychotherapy, recognized by professional unions and accepted by a new generation of online clients. Dr. Dror Green was one of the pioneers in online therapy, and he practices it since 1999. He dedicated his Ph.D research to online therapy and defined the unique characteristics of this new approach to therapeutic relationship. Dr. Green developed the first and only online clinic that both documents the therapeutic process and maintains clients’ confidentiality. The online clinic is a revolutionary development in online psychotherapy, since it includes all advantages of face-to-face psychotherapy. The online clinic creates a new kind of therapeutic relationship in a safe place for the therapeutic interaction, integrating all kinds of online communication. Dr. Green’s book, The Online Clinic, Therapeutic Relationships in Online Therapy, will be published soon.
Online communication is the best setting for PTSD victims, since it enables them to interact anonymously or in the confidential setting of the online clinic without leaving their houses. Dr. Dror Green’s new method of Emotional Training (Books, Publishers & the Institute of Emotional Training, 2011) is a unique approach for treating post-trauma. Dr. Green is a PTSD veteran, and since 2000 he devotes his time to supporting PTSD victims and their relatives in support groups, family therapy and individual therapy. This new approach is based on the assumption that PTSD is not pathologic and not an illness that can be cured, but a severe damage. PTSD is a severe damage to the emotional process, the process that enables us to attune ourselves to changes in reality, to avoid states of anxiety and to create a sense of a safe place. Emotional Training is a practical method of identifying and improving the damaged emotional skills, in order to rebuild integration which is essential for personal and social life.
The diploma course and training will take place in a unique online learning space, which demonstrates the actual work in the online clinic. The course is planned for 8-15 experienced therapists who hold a master’s degree in psychotherapy, clinical psychology, counseling or social work and are members of professional organizations (or licensed, in USA).
After completing the course successfuly, therapists can join the therapist's list in psychom and work with their clients in the online clinic.
