Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, (TF-CBT) is a collaborative child and parent psychotherapy approach for children and adolescents experiencing severe behavioral and emotional difficulties because of traumatic life events. Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the most well-supported and effective treatment for children who have been abused and traumatized. Multiple studies have consistently found it to help children with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other trauma-related problems.
Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is designed to create a supportive atmosphere where children and adolescents are made comfortable enough to discuss their traumatic experience. Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is based on learning and cognitive theories and addresses misconstrued beliefs related to the trauma. Through Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, parents are taught how to cope effectively with their own emotional issues in regards to their child’s trauma, as well as how to develop skills that help support their children.
