Topic: The topic is to examine the effectiveness of TF-CBT on adolescences age 12-17 who experience trauma in the United States.
Problem: The problem is adolescents require an effective evidence-based intervention to help them cope with trauma.
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) has been applied and relied upon more than other interventions like CBT since it helps children under trauma address upsetting beliefs and acquire skills for coping with life stressors. It demands the parents’ attention, and when they are involved, they cope effectively and support their children to overcome the trauma syndrome (Friedman et al., 2015). Trauma among teenagers is a serious issue that can be used for many things, including tragedies they have witnessed or even issues affecting the family members and friends. Therefore, TF-CBT intervention has been suggested as the best intervention for dealing with adolescents experiencing trauma (Yohannan & Carlson, 2019). Therefore, the project examining the TF-CBT’s effectiveness is paramount since it helps to identify how the approach has been helping children who are traumatized in the society. TF-CBT intervention involves a number of aspects which needs to be adhered to for the sake of evaluating the role and impact it has while handling the cases of trauma affecting teenagers.
TF-CBT is a global intervention and mitigation for trauma mostly experienced by teenagers. There is a need to go deeper to this intervention by considering how effectiveness in addressing trauma caused by a number of factors, including sexual abuse, exposure to a war environment, emotional abuse, parents’ divorce, and other causes (Morgan-Mullane, 2018). Therefore, studying the application of TF-CBT used to help children between 12 and 17 years will help evaluate its effectiveness as far as helping adolescents experiencing trauma in the United States. Moreover, it is vital to give attention to the children with intellectual disability and affected by trauma. Evaluating the effectiveness of TF-CBT as one of the recommended interventions will help in addressing trauma and other mental issues affecting children in the United States (Kameoka et al., 2015). The study will significantly strengthen evidence-based practices and come with effective policies to help children with intellectual disabilities since they are prone to trauma.
