Trauma Focused CBT
Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment approach shown to help children, adolescents, and their caregivers overcome trauma-related difficulties. It is designed to reduce negative emotional and behavioral responses following child sexual abuse, domestic violence, traumatic loss, and other traumatic events. The treatment-based on learning and cognitive theories-addresses distorted belief and attributions related to the abuse and provides a supportive environment in which children are encouraged to talk about their traumatic experience.
