I've been asked before by other therapists, "How do you treat a child or teen who has been sexually abused by their sibling, parent, step-parent, etc?" This training is created for professionals who need answers to that question to help current and future clients heal from trauma.

1) The overview of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to gain knowledge of this therapeutic approach to childhood trauma.
2) Basic knowledge to have when treating children who have experienced trauma(s).
3) Special considerations to have with children who have been the victim of sexual abuse by a family member such as a parent, step-parent or sibling and to have with their families. Some factors that can come up during the course of treatment include denial of the abuse by close family members and/or family members taking sides, the child's mixed feelings towards the offending and non-offending parents, and the involvement of CPS/DSS.
