Why TF-CBT ?
Many of the Polaris clients are children
"TF‐CBT is appropriate for use with sexually abused children or children exposed to trauma ages 3 to 18 and parents or caregivers who did not participate in the abuse."
Psychoeducation helps to normalize the symptoms and problems that often arise after trauma.
Helping the client to manage their emotional
reactions to reminders of the abuse.
Learning self soothing techniques/coping skills
Play Therapy Technique
(Cohen, Mannarino, & Deblinger 2006)
"Gradual exposure exercises, including verbal, written,
or symbolic recounting of abusive events, and processing of inaccurate and/or unhelpful thoughts about the abuse"
GRADUAL exposure to trauma
reminders, so client learns to manage their emotional reactions.
Example: Darkness, locations, reminders of aggressor
Family work to enhance communication and therapeutic discussion about the abuse.
*Recommendation for Polaris clients: conjoint sessions with a close friend, supportive family member, romantic partner
Enhancing personal safety & future growth
I hope we can bring some of these ideas to life!
