Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is a therapeutic treatment model designed to treat trauma and the emotional and behavioral problems related to the trauma. It has been used extensively with children and adolescents. The treatment model is designed to be delivered by trained therapists who work with the children AND their parents/guardians, who are a very important part of the intervention. There are several different components and stages to the intervention, including education, Relaxation skills, development of coping skills, Trauma narrative, In vivo exposure (when needed), Conjoint parent-child sessions, and safety planning. The typical length of the therapy intervention is 12-16 sessions, depending on the situation.
