A conjoint psychotherapy model for children and adolescents ages 3 to 18 who are experiencing significant emotional and behavioral difficulties related to traumatic life events. It is a hybrid treatment model that incorporates trauma-sensitive interventions with cognitive behavioral, family and humanistic principles. TF-CBT is designed to be a relatively short-term treatment, typically 12 to 16 weekly sessions for groups of 6-10 children and their parents or caregivers. It can also be used as a part of a larger treatment plan. Delivery sites include community agencies and outpatient clinics.
