Özet

Trauma focus cognitive behavioural therapy (TF-CBT) had been throughly investigated as a treatment modality in traumatized children which is widely used nowadays, but there is no one study that uses this treatment model in Turkish literature. Initially developed for sexually abused children; TF-CBT was adopted for the treatment of other traumatic events. This model is a structured short term treatment approach with the core components of: psychoeducation, behavioural parenting skills, affective regulation skills, cognitive coping skills, construction of a trauma narrative, cognitive processing of the traumatic events, invivo exposure to trauma reminders, conjoint child-parent sessions, and enhancing personal safety. The purpose of the present study is to analyze the previous studies of TF-CBT treatment in traumatized children with respect to their effectiveness.
