Stress related disorders are becoming more prevalent world-wide. Whether active duty military personnel or veterans living with post traumatic stress resulting from sustained combat situations, or First Responders coping with effects of unrelenting life-threatening circumstances or peer support personnel struggling with increased workloads and the need to find more effective treatment options, stress and stress related trauma are becoming critical issues for a wide range of front-line professionals and their families.
The Israel Center for the Treatment of Psychotrauma (ICTP), one of the world's foremost trauma centers, has developed innovative specialized programs to treat trauma, manage stress related disorders and build lasting resilience. Classique LLC is the exclusive provider of these programs in the United States and it is hosting an international conference, Moving Beyond Trauma: Building Resilience, at the Broadmoor Hotel and Resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado, February 1 through 4, 2011.
This conference is designed to effectively introduce ICTP's innovative research, methods, training, and programs to a variety of interested participants and their organizations. ICTP's programs have proven to be effective in dealing with trauma and building resilience in a wide variety of professional disciplines that operate in high stress environments and in populations impacted by traumatic situations and events. It is designed for mental health professionals, First Responders, peer support professionals, medical support personnel, and others.
Israel is no stranger to ongoing conflict and ICTP's expertise has been developed in an environment where conflict readiness and heightened societal unease are the norm. An estimated 9% of Israeli's suffer from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), three times the levels encountered in the United States and other Western countries. This context has bred a resourcefulness which has generated ground-breaking research and innovative approaches for treating the widespread effects of trauma and high stress. ICTP's cutting-edge programs use advanced methods for treating post-traumatic symptoms and reinforce natural coping mechanisms. ICTP's approach is not "point solution" - it is integrative and holistic. Program components and methods are designed to work in concert to develop superior metrics and achieve positive outcomes. As such, ICTP programs and training offer a unique value proposition because program design and methods deliver greater clinical efficacy, better outcomes, and long-term cost efficiencies.
ICTP experts have trained hundreds of mental health related professionals and para-professionals worldwide to meet the diverse needs of trauma survivors and those affected by stress related disorders each year. ICTP's expertise and programs have been used by the Centers for Disease Control in addressing trauma related issues resulting from Hurricane Katrina; in training Israeli police, fire and paramedics; in providing resilience training to 4,000 educators, treatment counselors and school psychologists; and in providing PTS screening and treatment programs for 42,000 children in Israel.
ICTP has an enviable track record and 2011 is the year you have the opportunity to learn what has been of considerable benefit to others at our February conference. Please join us for exciting and enlightening general session presentations and breakout sessions at one of the premier hotels in the country. Join us for Moving Beyond Trauma: Building Resilience.
