Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT): I have extensive experience providing (TF-CBT) to tweens/teens and their families. TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment that has proven effective for helping tweens/teens and their families overcome traumatic experiences. In 8-25 sessions, teens and their caregivers begin to show positive results and a profound decrease in trauma responses (symptoms).
TF-CBT helps you learn how to change your own brain. You will learn self-regulation skills and new ways of coping. You will develop new associations and a new way of thinking about what happened that makes it easier to live day-to-day. You will begin to recognize your strengths and create a path for yourself that allows you to move forward and enjoy life.
What I personally find really cool about TF-CBT is that tweens/teens and their parents usually find it quite fun! A tween/teen is not asked to process the trauma prior to their readiness and the skills learned along the way provide tweens/teens with a sense of control and achievement, thus boosting their self-esteem and happiness levels.
