ABOUT TF-CBT: TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents (ages 3-18) who are experiencing negative impacts following any type of traumatic event. Through this virtual training, therapists will learn how to implement the model with fidelity and how to know who is appropriate for this treatment. This training includes an overview of trauma-informed assessments and time to discuss clinical challenges. There will be opportunities for consultation regarding actual cases, to discuss challenges, and to share successes as children and families progress through the healing process. Also included in the price are 12 group consultation calls (1 hour each). These are steps that are required to provide TF-CBT and to become a Certified TF-CBT Therapist.
