Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

TF-CBT is designed for children and adolescents between the ages of 3-18. TF-CBT is designed to reduce the symptoms of trauma through: educating the child and parent about the effects of trauma, teaching skills for stress management, learning to work through difficult thoughts and feelings related to the trauma, and gradually working through memories of traumatic event(s). Sessions include individual time with the child, individual time with the caregiver, and joint sessions, where child and caregiver meet together with the therapist.

Integrated Treatment for Complex Trauma (ITCT)

ITCT (Integrated Therapy for Complex Trauma) is for children and adolescents (6 to 18-years-old), who have a history of multiple traumas, which has resulted in emotional and behavioral difficulties. ITCT is a flexible intervention designed to address specific needs through assessment and intervention in multiple formats (e.g. individual, group, family). ITCT addresses both attachment and trauma related symptoms by improving skills in distress tolerance, emotion regulation, impulse control, stress management, self-esteem, and social skills. Additionally, ITCT promotes resiliency by including the child’s existing social networks.
