  2. Participants will be able to explain the importance of desensitization and integration of trauma memories for the resolution of PTSD.

  3. Participants will be able to demonstrate the ability to catalyze the principles of reciprocal inhibition (exposure + relaxation) to desensitize the distress associated with Criterion B: Intrusion symptoms of PTSD.

  4. Participants will be able to demonstrate competency in determining whether your client is a good candidate for NET and to ascertain whether your client has acquired all the prerequisite skills to effectively engage in NET.

  5. Participants will be able to implement a checklist to determine when/if clients are eligible for NET.

  6. Participants will learn, practice and develop competency implementing the Five Narrative NET method with single-incident trauma.
