Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a treatment approach that helps
children and adolescents impacted by trauma, as well as 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

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 had the honor of being trained by Anthony P.
Mannarino, PH.D., one of the three founders who developed this treatment approach.  

Please feel free to contact my office if you have a referral, or if you would like more
information about this treatment approach.
