Event Details

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is the treatment for child/adolescent trauma-exposure related symptoms with the most evidence of effectiveness. Participants in US and international studies have decreased PTS, anxiety, depressive symptoms and behavior problems. This workshop will provide clinicians with training in how to provide TF-CBT to children/adolescents and their caregivers with specific emphasis on how to implement this model in usual community settings.

Through multiple case examples, the training will focus on the PRACTICE components of the model: Psychoeducation, Parenting skills, Relaxation and Affective modulation, Cognitive processing, Trauma narrative, In vivo mastery of trauma reminders, Conjoint child-parent sessions, and Enhancing safety and future developmental trajectory. The training will primarily focus on school-age children and adolescents.

Please note: All participants will be required to complete a web training on the basic principles of TF-CBT as a pre-requisite for the live training. The TF-CBT web training is free and provides 10 hours of CE Credits for eligible licensees. It is a standard pre-requisite for TF-CBT trainings that enables the trainer to focus on practice of skills, vs. basic theory.

About the Trainer:

Shannon Dorsey, Ph.D., is Associate Professor and Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the Department of Psychology at the University of Washington. Dr. Dorsey's research and clinical focus are on evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents. Within this area, she has particularly focused on evidence-based interventions for youth affected by trauma, youth with behavior disorders, and youth involved with child welfare. Dr. Dorsey is an expert in TF-CBT and conducts trainings nationally and internationally. She is principal investigator on two NIMH-funded projects evaluating the provision and supervision of TF-CBT for children and adolescents exposed to trauma. Learn more about Dr. Dorsey >
