What is Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT)?
TF-CBT is a conjoint child and parent psychotherapy approach for children and adolescents who are experiencing significant emotional and behavioral difficulties related to traumatic life events.
It is a components-based treatment model that incorporates trauma-sensitive interventions with cognitive behavioral, family, and humanistic principles and techniques.
Children and parents learn new skills to help process thoughts and feelings related to traumatic life events; manage and resolve distressing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors related traumatic life events; and enhance safety, growth, parenting skills, and family communication.
We do not currently have a TF-CBT training taking place.
“You would not believe the impact that the TF-CBT training has had on myself, on my clients, and the families that I work with. It has been life changing. I can’t even remember how I did more work before TF-CBT. I was recently at a CAC team meeting and I told them about TF-CBT and they were amazed by it. I can’t praise you guys [MoACTS] enough. It has been personally and professionally life changing. I have helped these kids so much better. And when I have questions I check in with my consultant, and the suggestions they gave me helped me work through the problem I was doing parts of this model before, but I didn’t know what it actually was, and this put things all together for me. I am so grateful.”
