Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

Judy has been trained in TF-CBT which is a evidenced based intervention for children aged 6-18 who have experienced a trauma.  This is an intervention that helps the child give words to their experience.

Psychology Today writes, “As its name implies is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that addresses the specific emotional and mental health needs of children, adolescents, adult survivors, and families who are struggling to overcome the destructive effects of early trauma. Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) is especially sensitive to the unique problems of youth with post-traumatic stress and mood disorders resulting from abuse, violence, or grief. Because the client is usually a child, TF-CBT often brings non-offending parents or other caregivers into treatment and incorporates principles of family therapy.”  Click here to read the full article.
