In May 2005, the Tree Group held a workshop by Dr. Edna Foa, a worldly renowned psychotherapist in treating PTSD, for professionals in the field of psychology and psychiatry. 


Dr. Foa is a clinical psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania in the U.S. and works as a director for Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety. Not only is she an expert in PTSD, Dr. Foa is also known for her work in psychopathology and anxiety treatments. She is the chairman of the committee for researching DSM-IV of PTSD. Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) developed by Dr. Foa has shown to result in the most therapeutic effects for individuals with trauma from sexual abuse, wars and human rights violations. 

In order to provide training for PE and supervision in an ethical manner, the Tree Group invited Dr. Foa to Seoul and held a 4-day intensive workshop. 


Dr. Cho translated and published Dr. Foa’s books, PE Manual and Workbook, and continues to research treatments to support victims and survivors of traumatic events and train juniors.
