TF-CBT Project


The Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Learning Collaborative is a 12-month training comprised of distinct learning periods followed by action periods for applied learning and reflection. Agencies participate in clinical teams comprised of at least one supervisor and a group of clinicians. There is support built in, both at the agency level through individual and group supervision, and at the training level through twice-a-month clinical consultation calls provided by the national trainer. In addition, supervisors participate in their own track of once-a-month consultation calls to specifically develop TF-CBT supervisory skills. The goal is to implement and sustain evidence-based trauma screening, assessment, and clinical treatment in an effort to create a more trauma-informed and responsive child welfare system.
