Information for Families and Children “TF-CBT”
Parents, caregivers, and other family members want their children in their care to receive help to recover from the effects of trauma. Family members need information about the treatment process and what they can expect. Children need to know what is expected of them. Families should know this about TF-CBT:
- It has been proven to work.
- It is often successful in 12-16 sessions.
- Talking about the trauma, even though it may be hard, is an important ingredient in successful therapy. This aspect of therapy will be done gradually and in collaboration with families. Children will not be forced to talk about what happened.
- Sometimes during the early phases of therapy, children will be more upset than before therapy began. They may complain of not liking therapy. But, over time, remembering and talking will become easier and they will begin to feel better.
