This directory lists the 334 licensed clinicians that we trained across Louisiana to provide cognitive
behavioral therapy (CBT) for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD),
which is the best evidence-based psychotherapy for youths with
trauma-related problems. We used Dr. Scheeringa's Youth PTSD Treatment (YPT) protocol.
Optimal training involves attendance at our one-day training plus six months of weekly consultation calls on actual cases. In order for you to judge the level of expertise of these clinicians, we listed them in this directory in terms of whether they achieved the full, optimal training (Advanced Training), medium-level of training (Basic Training), or minimal training (One-Day Training):
Indicates clinicians who received the 1-day training plus participated in weekly consultation calls during which the consultant monitored their case through at least 7 of the 12 sessions in the manualized YPT protocol.
Indicates clinicians who received the 1-day training, plus attended at least 5 weekly consultation calls during which other clinicians discussed their cases being treated with the YPT protocol. These clinicians did not receive weekly consultation on their own cases.
One-Day Training Only
Indicates clinicians who received the 1-day training but did not opt to participate in the weekly consultation calls.
