CONCEPT – The Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI) Learning Collaborative

The CFTSI is a brief, evidence-based, early intervention model designed to prevent traumatic stress reactions and development of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in children who have recently been exposed to a traumatic event. CFTSI brings together the child and caregiver(s) to increase communication and awareness about traumatic stress reactions, provide skills to manage these reactions, and to support the family with concrete needs such as housing and safety planning. A randomized clinical trial has shown that children receiving CFTSI were 65% less likely to have a diagnosis of PTSD three months following treatment than children receiving treatment as usual.
