Pre-Requisite: TF-CBTWeb

Trauma and abuse are widespread and often extremely deleterious in its psychological impact. The purpose of this presentation is to provide information on empirically validated interventions designed to help children and adolescents who have suffered traumatic experiences, including child sexual abuse, physical abuse, and domestic violence. The presenter will briefly present the findings of a series of randomized trials documenting the efficacy of the treatment approach to be presented, as well as applications with different cultural groups. The development of therapeutic collaborative relationships with both the child and the nonoffending parent(s) will be emphasized, along with the establishment of structure and goals for treatment. The cognitive behavioral interventions for children, adolescents and nonoffending parents to be presented include coping skills training, gradual exposure and processing exercises, educational work, personal safety skills training and exercises to enhance parent child communication.


1. Identify three conditions that TFCBT addresses with significant success.
2. Describe at least 2 studies that have applied TFCBT in a culturally sensitive manner.
3. Name 3 standardized measures used to assess treatment outcome with TFCBT.
4. Describe 3 examples of gradual exposure.
5. Identify 3 methods of cognitive processing used in TFCBT.
6. Describe 2 contraindications for sharing the trauma narrative with caregivers.

Who should attend: Psychologists, social workers and other mental health professionals treating children who have suffered abuse and maltreatment.
