An Overview of Evidence-Based Trauma Interventions for Children and Adolescents May 05, 2022
The significant short-term and long-term impact of trauma on children and adolescents is well documented and it is therefore critical that youth affected by trauma receive effective treatment. Fortunately, the number of evidence-based trauma interventions for children and adolescents has been increasing. This workshop will briefly define evidence-based treatment in general and then provide an overview of various evidence-based trauma interventions for children and adolescents. There will be a particular focus on Trauma-focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, a trauma treatment model co-developed by Esther Deblinger, Ph.D. that has demonstrated its efficacy in over 23 randomized controlled trials.
