Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Learning Collaborative

Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT; Cohen, Deblinger & Mannarino, 2004) is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents ages 3–18. TF-CBT integrates cognitive behavioral techniques with trauma-specific interventions.

The model has been researched in numerous randomized clinical trials and is considered the “best practice” model for reducing traumatized children’s emotional and behavioral problems. Children and families who receive TF-CBT meet weekly with a therapist, both individually and jointly. The treatment typically lasts 12–20 sessions.

This is training uses the learning collaborative model, which requires ongoing consultation activities (e.g., calls). This is not a single event training. Trainees will attend a 2-day intensive training, then participate in 6 months of bi-weekly consultations calls where clinicians play an interactive role as they staff TF-CBT cases, and receive support and guidance as they begin to deliver TF-CBT to youth.
