Using TF-CBT Applications with LGBTQ Youth & Families

Summary

This advanced mental health training spans one (1) day and is specifically designed for clinicians who provide therapy in a children's advocacy center setting.

Participants will gain the knowledge and skills to apply the Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) model in cases involving lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer/questioning (LBGTQ) youth and caregivers. The curriculum highlights cultural considerations needed to provide quality mental health services and strategies for providing culturally competent therapeutic interventions for this population.

Format: This interactive program includes lecture on and discussion around current research and best practices, hands on activities, and role play.

Schedule:
October 24th 8:30am-4:30pm

Prerequisites: Current employment with or contractor of a local children’s advocacy center in the state of Texas as a mental health clinician and completion of a TF-CBT Learning Collaborative.

Approval Process: Registering for this training does not guarantee acceptance.* Applicants will be notified of their final registration status at a minimum of three (3) weeks prior to the start of the training.

*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 offerings 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.

CEU Credits: 6.5 Hours (SW/LPC/LMFT)
