Free CEU’s: Trauma Focused CBT (TF-CBT)

If you are like me and use CBT (which I imagine you do) then I hope you will find this very helpful. The Medical University of North Carolina and the National Child Traumatic Stress Network have put together a CEU accredited 10 hour FREE online training on Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). The online training can be found at their website: . It does take a full day to complete the training, so this isn’t a skip through a bunch of pages and get your certificate kind of deal. I have used this curriculum in a residential and school environment with success.

Other TF-CBT resources are listed below. Let me know if you have take the training or used it in your work before.

The Manual :

(includes printable UCLA PTSD Child, Adolescent, and Parent Index for DSM-IV- a PTSD Assessment)

FREE TF-CBT Workbook:

Treating PTSD and Behavioral Issues using TF-CBT:

(on page 7 there is a very simple behavior management outline/plan that would be great to use with parents)

Play and TF-CBT:

This gives very specific examples of play therapy techniques that can go with various phases. I was not aware of all of these and did some research to find an explanation for as many as I can find- IF YOU KNOW THE ONES I COULD NOT FIND- PLEASE SHARE! See my Play Therapy Resource Library Post here.

It also suggests using the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL). It is long and scoring is not a breeze but does give you a good overall view of problems and progress. More info can be found here:
