Children’s advocacy centers make tremendous efforts to base their work with victimized children on evidence-based practices—those methods that have been proven to work. In the aftermath of abuse, many therapists are using TF-CBT (trauma focused cognitive behavior therapy) to move children and non-offending care givers onto the road to wellness.

This month’s Mental Health Connections, a newsletter from the Southern Regional Children’s Advocacy Center gave a concise summary of TF-CBT for those without a mental health background and are wondering how this works. The information is from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.
