Marcella Hayes, MA, LPC, Certified TF-CBT Therapist, presents a two hour presentation on “Treating Childhood Traumatic Grief Utilizing Components of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.” Therapists will be provided an interactive discussion on the process of utilizing components of Trauma-Focused CBT to adapt to Childhood Traumatic Grief (CTG) and create a Traumatic Grief Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TG-CBT) treatment plan. The purpose of this presentation is to aid clinicians in exploring options that would facilitate treating the traumatic aspects of the death event for client to proceed and engage in the grief focused work processing typical tasks for their natural grief process. Treating children with a traumatic event can be more difficult because the child with Childhood Traumatic Grief may be “Stuck” in the trauma and it interferes with the natural mourning process. By utilizing this model clinicians are able to assist in helping children and caregivers process the trauma in order for them to continue to heal and mourn naturally.
