Dr. Meichenbaum will begin with an examination of the controversies surrounding the concept of PTSD and consider the “state of the art” in treatment outcome studies. He will discuss what factors contribute to the development of chronic PTSD and related adjustment difficulties versus the development of resilience and post-traumatic growth. He’ll offer a Case Conceptualization Model that incorporates these factors and that informs both assessment and treatment decision-making. He’ll enumerate and discuss how to implement the Core Tasks of Psychotherapy in an integrated fashion that addresses the high incidence of comorbid disorders from a life-span perspective. He’ll discuss his project with the National Guard to develop IPOD technology to bolster resilience in returning service members and his latest work on forming a “Roadmap to Resilience.”
