Dozens trained in trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy

Trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy trainingThe Indiana Chapter in partnership with National Children’s Alliance offered trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy training to 28 professionals in the social services and law enforcement industry last week.
 
The training, held in Indianapolis, is practiced to help children experiencing clinical post-traumatic stress recover to a healthy mental state. This therapy is sometimes used for the parents or caregivers, children, and adolescents and has shown decreases in negative behavior and emotional responses that occur as a result of sexual abuse, physical abuse, or other trauma.

Children and parents are given practical tips, advice, and coaching to alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression that often occur after a trauma. Instances of abuse, rape, assault, or being a witness to such an event are all too common in Indiana’s homes.

The goal of TFCBT is to get the parents or caregivers and children to develop healthy communication.
