Introduction to TF-CBT

Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 

What is TF-CBT?

TF-CBT is a psychosocial treatment model designed to treat post-traumatic stress and related emotional and behavioral problems in children. Initially developed to address the psychological trauma associated with child sexual abuse, the model has been adapted for use with children who have a wide array of traumatic experiences, including domestic violence, traumatic loss, and the often multiple psychological traumas experienced by children prior to foster care placement.

Upcoming Conferences:

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) in partnership with the Ohio Departments of Developmental Disabilities (DoDD) and Education (ODE) will host the 10th Annual Trauma-Informed Care Summit on May 16-17 at the Hilton Columbus/Polaris.

This year’s theme is Pathways to Resilience, Healing, and Recovery. The purpose of the 10th Annual TIC Summit is to move our systems from beyond being trauma informed to providing trauma responsive and competent care, services, and supports. When our care, services, and supports are trauma responsive and competent, the people we support and serve build resilience and are able to heal and recover.
