Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is designed to help children and their parents overcome the negative and often devastating effects of trauma. Traumatic life events that children experience may include child sexual or physical abuse; traumatic loss of a loved one; exposure to domestic, school or community violence; exposure to disaster, terrorist attacks, or war trauma; serious accident such as car or plane; and serious medical procedures, operations or hospitalizations.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy was developed by integrating cognitive and behavioral interventions with traditional child abuse therapies that focus on enhancement of interpersonal trust and empowerment. The intervention can be provided to children ages 3-18 and their parents.
