Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 2-Day Training

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 2-Day Training (TF-CBT) is a heavily researched, evidence-based form of therapy designed to treat children who have experienced a traumatic event and struggle with subsequent emotional and/or behavioral problems. The model treats children with an array of trauma histories, including children with multiple and complex traumas in their lives. This course is designed for mental health professionals who work with children who
have experienced trauma. It is an intermediate-level course.
