"Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based
treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma and their parents or
caregivers.  Research shows that TF-CBT successfully resolves a broad array of
emotional and behavioral difficulties associated with single, multiple, and complex
trauma experiences."1

The following information is from the Maine Children's Trauma Responsive Initiative:

 "TF-CBT was given a ranking of "1", the highest level of empirical support in the U.S.
Department of Justice sponsored report Child Physical and Sexual Abuse: Guidelines
for Treatment.

 TF-CBT was selected as a “Best Practice” for cases of child abuse in the Kaufman
Best Practices Final Report, sponsored by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.

 TF-CBT has been named a Model Program by the National Registry of Evidence-
based Programs and Practices of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services
Administration."

I was a participant in the Maine Children's Trauma Response Initiative in 2015 and
2016, which was an effort funded by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network to
bring TF-CBT to children in Maine.  I was very excited for the opportunity to be
trained by Anthony P. Mannarino, PH.D., one of the three founders who developed
this treatment modality.
