EBT Trauma Training (TF-CBT)

Evidence-Based Trauma Treatment Training (TF-CBT)

  • We offer training and consultation in Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) to clinicians and supervisors in order to increase the number of providers trained in evidence-based trauma treatment in our state.
  • TF-CBT is the most rigorously tested treatment for trauma in children, with research supporting that TF-CBT is more effective than therapy as usual for traumatized youth.
  • TF-CBT is a time-limited, components-based trauma-focused model that involves child sessions, parent sessions, and combined parent-child sessions.
  •  The goal for providing training and consultation in TF-CBT is to increase access to treatment services for youth and families who have experienced trauma and families throughout Massachusetts.
  • We will be providing additional advanced training in applications of TF-CBT for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth, Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC), youth of substance abusing parents, and Transition Age Youth.
