Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Training

Sponsored by Cenpatico

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma that includes participation by their parents or caregivers. Research shows that TF-CBT successfully resolves a broad array of emotional and behavioral difficulties associated with single, multiple and complex trauma experiences.

Who May Attend: Licensed clinicians actively treating children in foster care. Other individuals in the child welfare community may attend on a space-available basis

Cost: This class is provided by Cenpatico and local Health Plans at no cost to our providers as part of our continuing effort to help clinicians treating children in foster care enhance their skills and utilize the best evidence-based tools available

CEUs: Depends on state where training conducted. Registration information will identify what CEUs are available. Please note that you must attend both full days and the 2.5-hour Overview Webinar for CEU credit.
