This product is a 15 page PowerPoint on Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I am a special education teacher who just completed an additional Master’s degree in Applied Psychology. My aim has been to address some of the social-emotional deficits that contribute to a lack of learning and social isolation, especially among the special education population. The first step I have taken towards this goal has been to learn more about psychological disorders that impact classroom performance. I have other PowerPoint presentations related to different psychological disorders including depression, ADD/ADHD, behavior disorders, bipolar disorder, etc. There are also companion PowerPoint that include cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) techniques specific to certain psychological disorders.
These PowerPoint presentations summarize crucial information from my special education program as well as my psychology program and additional reading I have done (complete reference pages are included at the end of each PowerPoint). I did my best to make these PowerPoint presentations clear and concise. These are large files because I have also included downloaded videos.
If you like my material, I would recommend purchasing the link to my HaikuLearning site which includes all of my PowerPoint presentations as well as other videos and educational materials. Topics covered in the PTSD and CBT for children PowerPoint include the following:
• Diagnostic Criteria for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
• Brain functioning
• HPA Axis
• Trauma reminders
• Maladaptive cognitions
• Application of CBT
• CBT Core components for PTSD
