TF-CBT Effectiveness Study
Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based mental health treatment designed for children who have experienced traumatic life events. Children at the Kennedy Krieger Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress receive TF-CBT on a clinician available basis.
The TF-CBT Effectiveness Study will evaluate the effectiveness of this intervention in children with a history of trauma who have been treated at the KKFC compared to children who have experienced trauma who were not in TF-CBT. Data analysis will be performed in a post hoc fashion.
The study hypothesis is that children treated with TF-CBT will have improved six month behavior and parenting stress outcomes compared to children who are receiving standard care at KKFC.
