What is TF-CBT? TF-CBT (Cohen et al., 2006) is an intervention that was developed for traumatized children with PTSD and their non-offending caregivers. Treatment is divided into three phases: coping skills (i.e., affect identification and regulation for children, affect regulation and parent training for caregivers), trauma narrative, and conjoint sessions to share the narrative and develop ongoing safety plans. Treatment is designed to reduce trauma-related mental health problems, including children’s PTSD, depression, and externalizing behavior problems.

The evidence supporting the efficacy of TF-CBT is impressive. To date, TF-CBT developers and their have published over 20 randomized controlled trials showing that the model works with preschoolers, children, and adolescents who have been sexually abused, exposed to intimate partner, bereaved due to traumatized circumstances, exposed to disasters, etc.  TF-CBT treatment effects included significant reductions in children’s PTSD, depressive symptoms, and externalizing behaviors.
