    Course Description

    Basic Training:

    This course will provide an in-depth overview of the entire Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy model, an evidence-based treatment model for traumatized children and adolescents ages 3-18. Trainees will learn practical interventions from the model that they can immediately apply in their work with clients. This training will include demonstrations of TF-CBT techniques as well as roleplays within dyads and small groups.

    Advanced Training:

    The advanced training will help therapists broaden and deepen their application of TF-CBT in their work. 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. 

    Presentation Format:

    Both trainings are presented through an interactive lecture which includes:

    • PowerPoint presentation
    • Small group activities
    • Video demonstrations of interventions
    • Clinical case presentations
    • Time for questions, answers and discussion
