Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

Advanced Training


TF-CBT is an evidence-based psychotherapy approach designed to treat posttraumatic stress and related emotional and behavioral difficulties in children and adolescents (ages 3-18). Advanced Training builds on TF-CBT Basic Training to provide clinicians with deeper knowledge of TF-CBT and it's application in therapy. Through this training, clinicians will benefit from the expertise of Dr. David Hong as well as the opportunity to practice their clinical skills with others. By exploring the use of TF-CBT in a variety of situations, this training equips clinicians to apply TF-CBT in even the most complex and difficult cases. 

TF-CBT Advanced Training is part of the full TF-CBT training package offered through Washburn Center's Training Institute. It may be attended in conjunction with the full training package or as a booster for anyone interested in strengthening their understanding and practice of TF-CBT.

We will discuss the application of TF-CBT with special situations and populations such as: Childhood Traumatic Grief, Foster Care, Ongoing Trauma and other special populations. TF-CBT practitioners will also deepen their use of the Trauma Narrative by adding structure to help children overcome avoidance of their trauma memories.
