Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral therapy (TF-CBT)
The goal of TF-CBT is to help address the symptoms and behaviors of children with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). TF-CBT is a model of psychotherapy that combines trauma-sensitive interventions with cognitive behavioral therapy. Children and parents are provided knowledge and skills related to processing the trauma, managing distressing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and enhancing safety, parenting skills, and family communication. TF-CBT typically lasts from 12 to 16 sessions.
