Advanced TF-CBT Conference:
The May 7th and 8th Advanced Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Conference will offer various interactive workshops by several presenters on advanced topics related to the application of TF-CBT.

Conference Description:
The Advanced TF-CBT two-day conference provides therapists with extended training in the application of TF-CBT. The conference is designed for therapists who previously completed a two-day introductory TF-CBT training and are actively implementing the model in their therapeutic work.

This year’s conference will provide specialized opportunities for advanced skill development in the implementation of the TF-CBT Trauma Narrative and Cognitive Processing components. During each conference morning, participants will select one of three tracks suited to their particular skill level. Sessions during Morning 1 will focus on the Trauma Narrative process. Morning 2 will provide specialized sessions on Cognitive Processing.

During each conference afternoon, various interactive workshops by multiple presenters will be offered. Participants will have the opportunity to select sessions meeting their specific therapeutic interests.
