Helping the Traumatized Child: A Therapist's Workbook is designed as a helpful addition to any TFCBT therapist's library. This workbook was created to be used in conjunction with TFCBT and offers the child therapist unique kid-friendly activities to compliment the TFCBT model components.
This workbook has also been field tested with success in Los Angeles at the Children's Institute.
The activities are based on cutting-edge research in the field of trauma treatment for children. Studies have found that educating children about trauma, providing positive stress management techniques, re-exposing the child to the traumatic events, and changing children’s distorted thoughts about the trauma, are all effective strategies for ameliorating the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The activities in the workbook are best used with children ages seven to eighteen, but can be tailored for children as young as four-years old.
