Several key elements are required for a therapist to truly learn any new treatment model. The generally accepted trainings requirements for TF-CBT are for a therapist to attend the 2-day in-person “Introduction to Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavior Therapy” provided by a Master Trainer and to complete at least one TF-CBT case while under consultation with a Master Trainer. Master trainers in the stte of Oklahoma are Susan Schmidt, Ph.D., Elizabeth Risch, Ph.D., Dolores Subia Bigfoot, Ph.D., and Roy Van Tassell, LPC.
