What is this webinar about? 
This exciting webinar will draw from Dr. Briere’s upcoming book, Treating Risky and Compulsive Behavior in Trauma Survivors. He will outline a comprehensive treatment approach, including his Reactive Avoidance model (RAm), in a way that is clinically relevant and easy to understand. Associated interventions that directly address the emotional dysregulation and easily triggered states that lead to distress-reduction behaviors will also be explored. Reactive Avoidance model techniques will be introduced, including trigger management, mindfulness and metacognitive awareness training, urge and emotion surfing, behavioral replacement, harm reduction, and titrated processing of early implicit and explicit memories. 

Objectives: By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the Reactive Avoidance Model (RAM).

  2. List 3 different distress reduction behaviours.

  3. Describe trigger management.

  4. Discuss the limitations of classic prolonged exposure and habituation for those involved in significant distress reduction behaviors.
