Sometimes we struggle to balance individual kids’ needs with implementing evidence-based care.
We know evidence-based treatment is an important goal, but statistics and research only go so far if the intervention isn’t the right fit for the child in the room.
Part of the experience of trauma is a sense of loss of control and disempowerment. Traumatized young clients need an active hand in their treatment, and as therapists we must foster this while implementing evidence-based care.
Dr. Amy Marschall, psychologist certified in TF-CBT and expert in evidence-based care for children and adolescents, will teach you how to balance the structure of CBT and the flexibility of a trauma-informed approach, in a way that meets each child’s unique needs.
In this one-day event, you’ll learn to:
Integrate effective CBT techniques with a trauma-informed approach
Adapt your approach when you feel “stuck” in treatment
Gain confidence treating children with histories of trauma
Choose from a robust arsenal of techniques and tricks that are useful in-the moment

Manual - Trauma-Informed CBT for Children & Adolescents
Integrate a trauma-informed approach to assessment, treatment planning, and sessions.
Employ a collaborative approach to treatment planning, balancing relevant, specific, and time-measurable goals with each client’s articulated goals for their care.
Modify therapeutic interventions based on client feedback of their unique needs, preferences, and history.
Utilize trauma-informed, evidence-based cognitive behavioural interventions in sessions, including mindfulness activities, breathing exercises, visualizations, metacognition, and psychoeducation.
Apply evidence-based cognitive-behavioural techniques while teaching clients to identify what does or does not work for them about each technique, and adjust interventions appropriately in light of client feedback.
Assess behavioural issues from a trauma-informed perspective, with an emphasis on identifying and addressing underlying needs rather than consequences or punishments for problem behaviours, and educate parents on how to implement this approach outside of sessions.
