Executive Summary:

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT) was developed by Anthony Mannarino, Judith Cohen and Esther Deblinger. TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment that has been evaluated and refined during the past 25 years to help children and adolescents recover after trauma.

Its overall aim is to apply relevant CBT techniques to help the young person while maintaining a therapeutic relationship with the parents as well. It typically covers a dozen or so sessions. It is not normally used where the young person's trauma has been caused by the parents.

The aims of the course:

This course aims at addressing the needs of children and adolescents with PTSD and other difficulties related to traumatic life events. Research suggests that TF-CBT is effective in helping children who have experienced traumatic events.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT), for Children and Families course has received.

"The course was a perfect mix of presentation from the trainer, interactive sections with peers and well timed breaks in between. Each day flowed by which showed how engaging it was! I found the trainer to be very engaging, supportive and encouraging with delivering a sensitive subject and found the material very interesting. It has certainly sparked off a further interest in future CBT training opportunities and there is a lot from this course that I will take into my practice as a counsellor. Thank you again!"
