Abstract

This case study describes the successful application of an adaptation of Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for a 16-year-old presenting with chronic posttraumatic stress disorder related to traumatic grief, anxiety, depression, anger, and somatic complaints. TF-CBT is a manualized intervention with demonstrated efficacy in numerous clinical trials for children and adolescents who experienced various traumatic events. In the current study, an adapted form of TF-CBT for use with traumatic grief is utilized and other evidence-based practices are integrated into treatment in light of clinical events.
