Following single, multiple, or complex trauma, parents can struggle to determine how to help their children. In many cases where children experience trauma, the family unit has also been damaged, and the child will always need the support of family throughout their therapy process. That's why Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) incorporates individual and family therapy techniques. If your child has experienced abuse or traumatic events, TF-CBT may be an effective solution.
What is TF-CBT?
TF-CBT is an evidence-based therapy method developed to help children and adolescents heal after trauma. It also combines family therapy techniques to help the rest of the family to provide support and encouragement for kids and heal the potentially damaged familial bonds. It takes its origin from traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and combines both individual trauma counseling and family therapy techniques.
Is TF-CBT Right for Me?
As parents, we do all that we can to keep our children safe. When our kids are in danger or experience violence or trauma, we can feel like we've failed them. Not to mention the fact that following single, multiple, or complex trauma, most parents just aren't equipped to help their kids feel better. Don't let the feelings of regret or guilt rule you. Instead, visit Prospering Hope Counseling for TF-CBT. This researched and solutions-focused therapy method helps kids recover from trauma and lead healthy lives, and as a form of family therapy, it also helps to heal the familial bonds. TF-CBT can be an effective solution for families who have chosen to foster or adopt children with trauma in their backgrounds.
What Happens During Therapy Using TF-CBT?
Individual therapy for children who have experienced trauma may utilize a number of methods to help them work through the effects of trauma and improve their behaviors and experiences. Because TF-CBT is also a family therapy technique, it can help repair damage that occurs to your family unit and ensure your child has the support they need to move forward and lead a satisfying life. Because the family dynamics and individual trauma experiences differ dramatically, The actual sessions will differ as well. Depending on the age of the child, we may use a variety of additional therapy techniques to teach coping skills and help improve their cognitive and behavioral health. In most cases, TF-CBT is a short-term solution, and your family will need to commit a limited number of sessions over several months, a year, or a little longer. The end result is a safer, happier family.
