Discussion about the work of Anke Ehlers- Treating Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Effectively and Efficiently: A Cognitive Approach

Anke Ehlers is the Professor of Experimental Psychopathology and Co-Director of the Oxford Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma at Oxford University. Before moving to Oxford (wrapped around a decade-long move to the Maudsley in London) she was the youngest female full professor in the German university system and a leading expert in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This last July she gave a keynote address at the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP) in Glasgow Scotland (see URL below) that described her decades long work on the nature and treatment of PTSD. The recent APA clinical practice guideline on PTSD gave her cognitive therapy approach its strongest recommendation. In her keynote address she describes how the intervention was developed and the empirical trials that support its efficacy along with recent efforts at dissemination. In the aftermath of the recent Kavanaugh hearings I thought the topic would be timely.
