Overview:
Many children have been exposed to physical abuse, sexual abuse, domestic and/or community violence, and other traumatic life events which are proven to dramatically increase risk of severe emotional distress and potentially lasting psychological and interpersonal difficultires. TF-CBT is an evidence-based therapy designed to treat children who have experienced a traumatic event and are struggling with subsequent emotional, behavioral, and/or cognitive symptoms. The treatment model has been used with children who have an array of trauma histories, including those with multiple and complex traumas. TF-CBT also helps the parent/caregiver participate in treatment.

This training is designed for mental health professionals who work with children who have experienced trauma. The three half-day remote training gives participants an opportunity to sharpen their understanding and skills in the powerful practice of TF-CBT. To learn more about TF-CBT, visit https://tfcbt.org.

The three half-day trainings are only one component of the TF-CBT program. To obtain a training certificate, which qualifies clinicians to move forward with other steps to become a certified TF-CBT therapist, participants must also complete the pre-web-based certificate and register for a minimum number of bi-monthly group consultation calls.
