Since the publication of the authoritative Treating Trauma and Traumatic Grief in Children and Adolescents, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) has become the leading empirically supported treatment for children exposed to traumatic life events. This book featuring a wealth of clinical examples describes ways that TF-CBT is being applied in a range of contexts and with diverse populations. Experienced clinicians provide specific recommendations for effectively implementing the approach in schools, foster care, and residential and international settings; incorporating play strategically; and tailoring TF-CBT for adolescents with complex trauma, children with developmental challenges, military families, and Latino and Native American children.
