Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Addressing the Mental Health of Sexually Abused Children

About the Course:

Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) has been found to reduce children’s negative emotional and behavioral responses after sexual abuse and other traumatic events. It also helps nonoffending parents cope with their own distress and develop skills to support their children. The material on which this course is based explores the characteristics and benefits of TF-CBT to help child welfare caseworkers and other professionals who work with at-risk families make more informed decisions about when to refer children and their caregivers to TF-CBT programs. It includes information about what makes TF-CBT unique, key components, target population, effectiveness, and what to look for in a TF-CBT therapist.
