Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Learning Collaborative

Summary

This intensive mental health training spans twelve (12) months and covers five (5) of the eight (8) criteria for TF-CBT certification, a nationally recognized credential. The Learning Collaborative is specifically designed for clinicians who will be providing therapy in a children's advocacy center setting.

Participants will gain the knowledge and skills to deliver TF-CBT to children who have experienced traumatic events and their caregivers. TF-CBT is a structured, short-term treatment modality that effectively improves a range of trauma-related outcomes in 8-25 sessions.*

*To date, fourteen (14) rigorous studies comparing TF-CBT to other active treatment conditions have been conducted in the U.S. (with Caucasian, African-American and Latino populations), Europe, Australia and Africa. All of these studies have documented that TF-CBT was superior for improving children’s trauma symptoms and responses.  Specifically, outcome data demonstrate significant improvement in child post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, sexual behavior problems, and aggression/conduct problems. In addition, the changes observed are greater than those observed with more traditional rapport-focused interventions. TF-CBT is endorsed by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and numerous other government and professional organizations.

Format: The format of this comprehensive program includes thirteen (13) hours of online coursework, two (2) two-day learning sessions, delivery of the model and use of assessments with current trauma clients, monthly consultation webinars, case presentation, and the tracking and reporting of client progress.

Schedule:
September 28th 8:30am-4:30pm
September 29th 8:30am-4:30pm

Prerequisites: Current employment with or contractor of a local children’s advocacy center in the state of Texas, caseload that will allow TF-CBT treatment with clients on a weekly basis (this experiential component is key to ensuring that clinicians learn the skills necessary to implement the model with fidelity), and signed executive director acknowledgement.

Approval Process: Registering for this training does not guarantee acceptance. Applicants will be notified of their final approval status at a minimum of three (3) weeks prior to the start of the training.* It is highly recommended to secure hotel accommodations at the time of application in order to procure the best rate; hotel availability decreases and rates increase as the training dates near.

*Offering quality, professional training in a classroom environment is a key priority for CACTX. We feel this format is the most conducive to effective learning as it allows for small group activities, one-on-one coaching, and ample opportunity for Q&A. However, given the inherent size of classroom training, we have to carefully manage the registration process. Our goal is to ensure that participants have timely access to the training sessions they are in need of in order to do their important jobs effectively. In reviewing registrations, our process is to assess both the registrant CAC’s needs as well as the registrant’s completion of course prerequisites.

Auditors: Clinicians who have previously completed TF-CBT training and are seeking to sharpen their skills may audit this training. Auditors are given the opportunity to participate in all coursework.

CEU Credits: 26 Hours (SW/LPC/LMFT)
