TFCBT is a therapy model developed by Drs. Judy Cohen, Tony Mannarino and Esther Deblinger. It is used for children ages 3‐18 who have experienced one or more significant traumatic life events, resulting in PTSD symptoms or functional impairments.
It is a short‐term therapy that involves individual sessions with the child and parent/caregiver respectively, as well as joint parent‐child sessions. A course of therapy typically consists of 12 – 20 weekly sessions, with each session lasting from 60 to 90 minutes.
The Sacramento Children’s Home identified the significant prevalence of trauma with the children we were serving and were committed to addressing this problem. We chose to invest in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy because of the positive results in treating the negative impact of trauma. Working with CIBHS has provides us the support and monitoring that we needed to implement and sustain TF-CBT. We have found CIBHS to be professional, timely and quality partners.
