Introductory Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

06/06/2013 - 06/07/2013 8:30 am - 5:00 pm


Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is a short-term, evidence-based treatment for children, ages 3 to 18, who have experienced trauma and their caregivers. This components-based psychotherapy model incorporates trauma-sensitive interventions with cognitive-behavioral, family and humanistic principles.

TF-CBT is empirically supported for use with youth impacted by trauma and co-occurring mental health problems. It is designated as a Model Program by SAMHSA and the National Child Traumatic Stress Network and has received the highest scientific rating as a Well-Supported Effective Practice by the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare.


The Introductory TF-CBT two-day training provides therapists with a comprehensive understanding of TF-CBT as well as hands-on practice opportunities. The training is designed to meet the introductory training requirements for the upcoming national TF-CBT Therapist Certification Program.

Introductory trainings are limited to 30 participants to support a personalized learning experience.  12.25 CEUs are awarded for training participation.
