New Learning Collaborative Announcement
Ambit Network is pleased to announce a new Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Learning Collaborative (LC). This LC is a part of a larger approach designed to build a trauma-informed system of care for children and families by:
- Providing therapists with a means of using standardized assessment instruments to assess children for trauma symptomology both pre and post treatment.
- Providing treatment to children and families with a history of trauma using
TF-CBT; TF-CBT is an appropriate treatment for clients in home-based, outpatient and residential settings.
Teams that are interested in applying for the Ambit TF-CBT LC may participate in an informational call scheduled for October 27th, 11:00 am CST. The purpose of this call is to review components and expectations for participation in the LC and to provide time for interested teams to ask questions and determine whether to proceed with the application process.
Applications are due November 21, 2014. A selection decision will be made and you will be notified by December 15, 2014.
