Enhancing TF-CBT Skills Using the PRAC Components: Psycho education, Parenting Practices, Relaxation Skills, Affect Modulation Skills, and Cognitive Coping

CE Type: 
# of CE's: 
0.55 IACET CEU's

The PRAC components, can be difficult to implement with fidellity.  While many therapists have worked with relaxation and feelings, the modulation part is often not done in a way that reaches the most dysregulated of clients, and new trainees can forget to link each of these components to the child's trauma for the child and the caregiver.  The focus will be on these particular components both in terms of additional didactic presentation and discussion as well as to provide opportunities to see the trainer demonstrate the skills live in role plays and to subsequently practice with the ability of the trainer to provide feedback

Learning Objectives: 

By the end of the presentation, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe the implementation of parenting practices
  • Describe the psychoeducation process
  • Observe and then demonstrate a live role play of dissemination of the psychoeducation process
  • Discuss relaxation skills and affect modulation, linking them to the child’s trauma
  • Observe and then demonstrate a live role play working on cognitive coping with caregivers and youth

The target audience are trainees in all cohorts of PACTS TF-CBT training and consultation initiatives. The training is required for PACTS TF-CBT Cohort VIII clinicians
