Trauma-Focused CBT for Children and Young People with PTSD

Presented by David Trickey

About the event

This is an online, participative event on the Zoom meeting platform, organised by the Children, Adolescents and Families Special Interest Group (CAFSIG).

The event will not be recorded.

A certificate of attendance will be issued for 6 x hours CPD - 50/50 skills and theory.

Registration closes - Midday Tuesday 25th April. Places are limited though so book early to avoid disappointment.

This online workshop will describe in detail the cognitive model of PTSD on which the various types of trauma-focused CBTs are based.

The model will then be used to consider:
  1. How children, young people and their families react to traumatic events, including a  particular focus on PTSD (both ICD-11 and DSM-5) and Complex PTSD
  2. How PTSD develops and is maintained
  3. How TF-CBT can be used to reduce symptoms of PTSD and Complex PTSD

Clinical examples and formulations are used throughout the training to illustrate how the model and the skills can be put into practice. In addition to direct teaching, there will be opportunities for questions and discussions as a whole group, as well as some small group discussion.

This event is suitable for any practitioners working with children and young people who have at least a basic understanding of CBT.

Learning Outcomes

1. Understand the cognitive model of PTSD with particular reference to children and young people

2. Be familiar with the diagnostic criteria for PTSD

3. Understand how to provide an intervention based on the cognitive modal of PTSD
