Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for children and adolescents

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based approach to the treatment of youths who have experienced single-episode and complex trauma.

The AMBIT Network in the Institute for Translational Research in Children's Mental Health (ITR) is collaborating with the Department of Psychiatry to bring these evidence-based therapies to children and adolescents with histories of trauma.

In February 2015, AMBIT/ITR began a one-year initiative to provide training in evidence-based therapies for grad students. Dr. Alexandra Zagoloff, who supervises several psychology graduate students from the Clinical Developmental Program at the Institute for Child Development has been learning to implement this approach. Along with the goal to provide training in evidence-based therapies for grad students, the Department of Psychiatry will be able to deliver an evidence-based approach to care for a population that previously did not receive services in our clinic as the TF-CBT will continue to be implemented in the clinic indefinitely.
