TF-CBT Cohort 30Triangle, Statewide

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Learning Collaboratives train teams from community based mental health agencies. Our model relies on clinicians training together with an administrative leader from their agency to ensure successful implementation and sustainability.

TF-CBT Learning Collaboratives include 7 face-to-face training days (or 14 virtual training half days), with bi-weekly individual clinical consultation calls and monthly group clinical consultation calls between training dates. In order to graduate, trainees must complete a full course of TF-CBT with at least 2 clients.

Who Should Apply?

  • Applicants are encouraged to apply as part of a team, which can bolster clinical implementation and model sustainability efforts both during and after the training period.
  • When reviewing applications, preference will be given to committed teams with a highly supportive Senior Leader.
  • Individual practitioners are also welcome to apply and may be paired with other individual practitioners for support/peer supervision during the Learning Collaborative.

Team Member Requirements

Senior Leaders (at least 1 per team) must have:

  • Administrative responsibility within their organization and/or within the local mental health community;
  • Authority to make systematic changes (e.g., procedures, budgeting) to support the implementation of TF-CBT within their organization and/or across their community.

Clinicians (6 per team maximum) must:

  • Provide psychotherapy to at least 5 children per week.
  • Serve the NC Medicaid population or have the ability to offer services free of charge.
  • Be a licensed clinician in North Carolina, including clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, psychological associates, psychologists, child psychiatrists, nurse specialists or practitioners. (Provisionally licensed applicants will be considered.)
