Description Trauma Focused CBT is an evidenced-based strategy for treating children and young people whose symptoms are persisting. It provides a very helpful framework and is a standardised model for treatment.

This presentation will identify the major components of TFCBT and identify creative ways of working within this framework.

The workshop component will involve opportunities to explore and practice some of these strategies. Some case examples will assist in exploring the application of this model to real practice. There will be use of some video-based teaching of various specialist clinicians as well.

This workshop will fulfill requirements for active professional development.
