Keystones training provides intensive training in TF-CBT specific applications for youth and their families who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation. This training is for experienced TF-CBT therapists. The purpose of the Keystones Learning Community is to bring together a group of providers who share a foundational knowledge of TF-CBT and a common interest in serving Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC). The Keystones Learning Community collectively builds on participants’ existing knowledge, as well as introduces new learning and activities to enhance clinical skills essential to serving this population.
The objectives for this training are for therapists to be able to implement and sustain TF-CBT with CSEC youth and improve outcomes for those who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and their families.
In the Keystones training, participants work together in the learning process and engage in experiential activities like role playing to enhance learning and reinforce skills. Participants learn about CSEC-specific applications within the PRACTICE framework, including but not limited to:
Participants also learn about common challenges in treatment with commercially sexually exploited children and adolescents and strategies to address them. Some of these difficulties include client and caregiver engagement difficulties, runaway risk and behavior, maladaptive coping strategies, including substance abuse problems, and TF-CBT in different settings with commercially sexually exploited clients.
