This workshop is designed for clinicians who have been trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and are looking for the next steps to help them integrate this model into their clinical practice. A wide range of practical suggestions to assist with implementation of each component of the model will be discussed. Barriers to effective implementation of the model will also be addressed and problem-solved.
This workshop is given by Amy Spratling and Keeley Mendenhall on Monday, November 12 from 1:15 – 2:45 pm.
