+ What is Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Trauma-Focused Therapy is a specific approach to therapy that recognizes and emphasizes understanding how the traumatic experience impacts a child’s mental, behavioral, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. This type of therapy is rooted in understanding the connection between the trauma experience and the child’s emotional and behavioral responses.
The therapy consists of eight components delivered in a structured format over 12-18 sessions. Families who receive TF-CBT commit to 12 weekly appointments minimum that involve both the child and caregivers.
