2020 Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Learning Collaboratives

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

TF-CBT is an evidence-based, short-term treatment model that effectively improves a range of trauma-related outcomes in children/adolescents, ages 3 to 18, and caregiver. TF-CBT is highly effective at improving youth posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms as well as many other trauma impacts, including affective (e.g. depressive, anxiety), cognitive and behavioral problems, as well as addressing the participating parent’s or caregiver’s personal distress about the child’s traumatic experience, effective parenting skills, and supportive interactions with the child.

TF-CBT Learning Collaborative

The TF-CBT Learning Collaborative is a 12-month process comprised of:

  • 5 in-person training days with TF-CBT national trainers
  • 14 group consultation calls with a TF-CBT national trainer, one hour each
  • TF-CBT webinar (10 hours, self-paced)
  • Child Traumatic Grief webinar (6 hours, self-paced)
  • Read TF-CBT clinical implementation book: “Treating Trauma and Traumatic Grief in Children and Adolescents” provided by DCF as part of the learning collaborative

Clinicians participate in teams with a supervisor. Clinicians will learn and apply TF-CBT by implementing the treatment model with 3-5 clients. Supervisors implement the model with 1-3 clients and participate in an additional monthly supervisor consultation call. The TF-CBT Learning Collaborative training aligns with eligibility requirements for national TF-CBT certification.
