While not often addressed in standard clinical care, there is a very high prevalence of trauma history and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in persons with serious mental illness. This seminar will provide an overview of the links among traumatic events, PTSD, and the course of serious mental illness. Clinical implications of trauma and PTSD will be discussed, as will the unique treatment needs of this population. A brief, effective method of screening for PTSD in those with serious mental illness will be reviewed.
Jennifer Gottlieb, Ph.D. is a Research Assistant Professor at Boston University, whose work has been devoted to the development and implementation of effective psychosocial interventions for individuals with schizophrenia and other severe mental illnesses. Her research focuses on the development, provision, and evaluation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) treatments for psychotic disorders; novel interventions for first-episode psychosis, as well as CBT treatments for trauma and PTSD for those with serious mental illness. Dr. Gottlieb is also a licensed psychologist with extensive clinical experience in the treatment of SMI, schizophrenia, first-episode psychosis, social skills training, dual disorders interventions, trauma and PTSD, and smoking cessation. She has delivered multiple national and international training workshops and lectures, provided clinical supervision and consultation, co-authored treatment manuals, collaborated on several research projects, as well as authored empirical and review papers and chapters in these areas.
Since Dr. Gottlieb will be teaching this topic from her office at Boston University, there will not be a live on campus presentation.
