Implementing Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for Preschool and School-Age Children with Problematic Sexual Behavior (PSB) Related to Trauma
This advanced training is for mental health professionals who previously completed Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) training and will aim to increase participants' understanding of Problematic Sexual Behavior (PSB) in children. The training will address multiple topics including dispelling myths commonly held about children with PSB and improving provider efficacy in assessing and addressing PSB as well as how to implement TF-CBT with trauma-related PSB. Focus areas include behavioral parent training skills (e.g., supervision, guidance, safety, and managing PSB), sex education, empathy and acknowledgement, and sensitivity handling trauma narration when the child has also acted out with another child.
There is an application for this training as well as pre-work that includes readings. Attendees need to be professionally license eligible, successfully completed TF-CBT training (i.e., web-based, in-person, and consultation calls), and successfully completed three TF-CBT cases using a standardized assessment measure to assess progress (two of these cases must have actively involved caregivers) to participate in this advanced TF-CBT training. Consultation calls will occur following the training.
