PTSD Consultation Program Monthly Lecture Series

On the third Wednesday of each month, the PTSD Consultation Program hosts a webinar on a topic relevant to treating PTSD. We select topics based on questions providers are bringing to the PTSD Consultation Program and invite an expert in that area to present the lecture. The target audience includes mental health professionals or other health professionals interested in topics related to treating Veterans with PTSD.

Monthly lectures offer 1 hour of accreditation for those who pre-register and participate in the live talks. CE/CMEs available: ACCME, ACCME-NP, APA, ANCC, NBCC, ASWB.
