Applying TF-CBT Components to Children to Children and Adolescents with PSB
January 25 - January 26
A significant amount of misinformation is present regarding the population of children and adolescents who sexually act out. It is often a population that providers, even those trained in TF-CBT, feel hesitant or unprepared to work with. This training will focus on preparing providers who are already trained in the TF-CBT model to work both effectively and safely with this population. The training will use the TF-CBT PRACTICE acronym as a base to build off of when applying PSB (problematic sexual behavior) intervention approaches for youths and their families.
At the end of this training participants will be able to:
- Distinguish fact vs. myth regarding children and adolescents who sexually act out.
- Understand how to apply TF-CBT PRACTICE skills for this group of children and adolescents.
- Recognize common mistakes in applying TF-CBT PRACTICE skills for this group of children and adolescents.
In addition, there will be opportunities for therapists to interact and share ideas and resources with each other.
Applications are open to clinical supervisors and therapists employed by or in contract with a CAC in the Southern region. Participants must meet the following requirements:
- Must be currently providing TF-CBT therapy to children and adolescents
- Must have completed basic TF-CBT training. You do not have to be nationally certified in TF-CBT in order to attend this training. However, you must have at least completed basic TF-CBT training which includes completion of the basic three-day training on TF-CBT and completion of the 9 following consultation calls. (For more information on these requirements, read the national requirements here.)
Due to the demand for TF-CBT training, we are currently allowing a maximum of two therapists to attend from any one CAC. Additionally, because this program is funded by a grant from the Department of Justice to provide training to CACs and MDTs within the Southern region, we will be accepting applications from only the Southern region (AL, AR, DE, GA, FL, KY, LA, MD, MS, OK, NC, SC, TN, TX, VA, WV and DC) at this time.
