Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy Training
The Tri-State Trauma Network is hosting a four-day, virtual Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) training on July 8, 9, 15 and 16. The four half-day trainings will be followed by 12 months of consultation required for TF-CBT certification. TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents (ages 3-18) who are experiencing negative impacts following any type of traumatic event. Through this training, therapists will learn how to implement the model with fidelity, how to assess for and identify trauma related symptoms, and how to know who is appropriate for this treatment. Cost is $400 for TTN members, $430 for non-members. Click HERE for information on pre-requisites, objectives, presenter bio, CEUs, and registration.
