Trauma Focused – CBT training

Embrace child victims of Crime will be holding a training event in Huntingdon on 15th and 16th May 2019.

Trauma focussed cognitive behaviour therapy (TF-CBT) is the only intervention recommended by NICE guidelines for children and young people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The cognitive model of PTSD in children and young people (Meiser-Stedman, 2002) will be presented and explained. This model will be used to consider:

• How children and families react to traumatic events.

• Risk factors for PTSD

• How TF-CBT and related interventions decrease distress and increase functioning.

By the end of this workshop the therapists should:

• Be familiar with and understand the cognitive model of PTSD

• Be aware of how children and young people commonly react to traumatic events (including PTSD) and how the cognitive model can account for these reactions.

• Have some understanding of how development and systemic factors impact on such a model

• Understand how to intervene effectively using TF-CBT, taking into account developmental and systemic issues.

• Be familiar with the evidence supporting TF-CBT for children and young people with PTSD.
