WET Learning Community

Written Exposure Therapy

Learning Community

Training Overview

Written Exposure Therapy (WET) is a 5-session, trauma-focused, evidence-based treatment for PTSD. WET is delivered with no formal between-session practice, and has been shown to be non-inferior to frontline PTSD treatments while demonstrating low dropout rates. Your foundational workshop will present the theory and rationale for WET, an overview of WET’s empirical support, and step-by-step instructions in the delivery of WET. Throughout the workshop, strategies for conceptualizing and dealing with co-morbidity, managing avoidance, and keeping patients optimally engaged will be provided.

Foundational Workshop: Begin your training with a live, virtual workshop focused on essential WET skills and delivery of the protocol.

Weekly Consultation: Receive follow-up consultation with a WET expert as you work with real-world clients and start using your new skills.

Provider Portal: Enjoy complimentary 1-year access to our Provider Portal, featuring advanced training webinars, therapy demonstrations, and implementation resources to enhance your learning journey.

Skills Checkpoints: Increase your mastery of PTSD assessment and treatment with our Assessment Webinar and Skills Labs—facilitated, experiential practice sessions. Additionally, Knowledge Checkpoints are opportunities to reflect on your training and check your understanding of WET.
