Course Description:
Due to COVID-19 health concerns, this one-time online event has been approved by APT for 12 CONTACT CE Hours. See below for full details. Course is limited to 40 attendees only. Once capacity is met, course will be unavailable for purchase. 
Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an empirically-supported psychotherapy model for treating traumatized children and adolescents. The effectiveness of this approach is enhanced by integrating creative, developmentally appropriate interventions so that children will engage in treatment.
This two-day webinar will provide an overview of TF-CBT and will present creative play therapy interventions for the 8 components of TF-CBT: Psychoeducation, Relaxation, affective modulation, cognitive processing, trauma narrative, in vivo mastery, conjoint child- parent sessions, and enhancing safety. Therapeutic games, art, stories, and other innovative activities will be presented for use with traumatized children aged 4-16. Strategies for working with hard-to-engage children and parents will also be outlined.
Through case examples, activity demonstrations, experiential exercises, and videos of actual client sessions, this training will combine theoretical material with hands- on therapeutic interventions. You will come away with a solid understanding of TF-CBT, and many new and innovative play therapy techniques for treating traumatized children and adolescents. 
Note: This course will provide clinicians with a solid grounding and application of the above skills, but we are not affiliated with and do not offer TF-CBT National Certification. Note to active subscribers: This course is a specialty training and is excluded from the subscription plan, please contact us for discount info.
