Event description

Description

Many children in need of trauma-focused treatment experience childhood traumatic grief(CTG), due to the loss of a loved one, through death or other means (e.g. separation, deportation, incarceration, termination of parental rights, etc.). Childhood traumatic grief may occur following the death of a loved one when the child perceives the experience as traumatic, and when trauma symptoms interfere with the child’s ability to navigate the typical bereavement process (NCTSN, 2004). Childhood Traumatic Grief can be successfully treated with an integration of trauma-focused therapy techniques and grief-specific therapy techniques.

The developers of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) offer specific CTG intervention components to be integrated into TF-CBT in 4-6 additional sessions for children experiencing traumatic grief and loss. CTG intervention activities support a more adaptive grieving process.

CTG components include:

  • Psychoeducation about grief and loss
  • Addressing ambivalent feelings about the loss
  • Preserving positive memories
  • Redefining relationships with lost loved ones and strengthening current supportive relationships
  • Planning for future loss reminders

This one-day advanced training is for clinicians who have already attended an Introductory (two-day) TF-CBT training. We will provide in-depth training in each of the CTG components, including clinical case examples and hands-on practice of the strategies, and their integration into TF-CBT.
