social workers, psychologists, licensed professional counselors, educators, school personnel, mental health professionals, clinicians, health and human service practitioners, and other health care professionals.

Description

Treating trauma and traumatic-grief in children can be a complex task. Effective treatment requires the use of an approach that is supported by research such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). Providers and caregivers often wonder what is involved in TF-CBT and how does it differ from “traditional”CBT? What children and caregivers are appropriate for this model? This program will answer those questions as well as covering recommended assessments, goals of treatment, and information about how to become trained. The second half of the program will provide direct and specific strategies for assisting children and their parents with managing the symptoms related to PTSD. This will include cognitive, emotional, and behavioral approaches.
