What is TF-CBT?

  • Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, or TF-CBT, is an evidence-based form of therapy specifically adapted for children who have experienced trauma and who are having significant emotional and/or behavioral problems related to their traumatic life events.
  • The goal of this 2-day training is to prepare clinicians to begin the practice of Trauma-Focused CBT.
  • TF-CBT (Cohen, Mannarino & Deblinger) is a psychosocial treatment model designed to treat post-traumatic stress and related emotional and behavioral problems in children.
  • Initially developed to address the psychological trauma associated with child sexual abuse, the model has been adapted for use with children who have a wide array of traumatic experiences, including domestic violence, traumatic loss, and the often multiple psychological traumas experienced by children prior to foster care placement.
