Information about Trauma Treatment
Unfortunately, trauma is very common. Fortunately, this means that we know a lot of effective ways to treat trauma. Below are the evidence-based treatment models used by our therapists at TRP.
Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI)
CFTSI is implemented within 30-45 days following a traumatic event or the disclosure of physical or sexual abuse. CFTSI is used successfully with children with extensive trauma histories. The goal of CFTSI is to decrease post-traumatic stress reactions and the onset of PTSD by increasing communication and family support.
Trauma-Focused Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma and their parents or caregivers. It is a components-based treatment model that incorporates trauma-sensitive interventions with cognitive-behavioral, family, and humanistic principles and techniques. TF-CBT has proved successful with children and adolescents (ages 3 to 18) who have significant emotional problems (e.g., symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder, fear, anxiety, or depression) related to traumatic life events. It can be used with children and adolescents who have experienced a single trauma or multiple traumas in their lives.
Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma For Adolescents (ITCT-A)
ITCT-A is a component-based, assessment-driven, multi-modal treatment for traumatized adolescents (aged 12 to 21 years) and their families. The ITCT model is based on developmentally appropriate, culturally adapted approaches that can be applied in multiple settings (outpatient clinic, school, hospital, inpatient, residential) and involves collaboration with multiple community agencies. ITCT-A addresses challenges specifically associated with complex trauma and includes separate treatment manuals addressing substance use as well as “acting out” or self-injurious behaviors.
Trauma and Grief Component Therapy for Adolescents (TGCT-A)
TGCT-A is a manualized group or individual treatment program for trauma-exposed or traumatically bereaved older children and adolescents that may be implemented in school, community mental health, clinic, or other service settings. It is a modularized, assessment-driven, flexibly tailored treatment manual and accompanying youth workbook that includes detailed instructions for conducting individual or group sessions. Specific treatment modules (and specific sessions within modules) are selected, prioritized, sequenced, and emphasized based on clients’ specific needs, strengths, circumstances, and informed wishes. The intervention contains a variety of components organized into four modules.
Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)
CPP is an intervention model for children aged 0-6 who have experienced at least one traumatic event and/or are experiencing mental health, attachment, and/or behavioral problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder. The treatment is based in attachment theory but also integrates psychodynamic, developmental, trauma, social learning, and cognitive behavioral theories. Therapeutic sessions include the child and parent or primary caregiver. The primary goal of CPP is to support and strengthen the relationship between a child and his or her caregiver as a vehicle for restoring the child’s cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning. Treatment also focuses on contextual factors that may affect the caregiver-child relationship.
