The Trauma Narrative component in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) can be difficult to implement with fidelity. Avoidance is common and getting the appropriate level of detail and standing your ground clinically with avoidant clients are common issues. The focus of this session will be on this particular component, both in terms of some 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.
1. Explain what trauma narration is and how it is used with caregivers and youth.
2. Describe what gradual exposure is and how it is related to the trauma narration process.
3. Set up a hierarchy or trauma narrative chapters and put them into cohesive order later.
4. Demonstrate how to elicit a trauma narrative with a client.
