TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) for children ages 3-18 who have experienced trauma; treatment involves individual sessions with child and collateral sessions with caregiver.
MAP (Managing and Adapting Practice) for treatment of children with disruptive behaviors (0-21), depression (8-21), anxiety (3-19), and traumatic stress (2-18).
