Trauma-Focused CBT

We know that childhood trauma does not come in one single package. It is complex and changes the brain. While this may seem disheartening, we also know that the brain can also be healed. Trauma Focused-CBT is one of the modalities we use to help with this process.


TF-CBT is an evidenced based therapy approach shown to help children and their parents or caregivers overcome trauma-related mental health symptoms. This works by helping children address distorted or traumatic beliefs and learn ways to cope with life stressors. It also helps parents learn how to cope with their own emotional stress and support their child. The treatment also focuses on reducing symptoms of depression, anxiety or acting out. Sessions include individual sessions for the child, individual sessions for the parent/caregiver and group sessions with the child and the parent/caregiver.
