Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Learning Collaborative
In partnership with Nationally Certified TF-CBT Trainers, MACA is pleased to assist in training clinicians statewide in this evidence-based modality. The purpose of this initiative is to reduce the wait lists for children & adolescents seeking trauma-based mental health services and to connect Children Advocacy Centers with their local agencies and trained clinicians. If interested in future rounds of learning collaboratives for clinicians, please contact Gina Amodio firstname.lastname@example.org.
