Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment for Pediatric Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: Protocol and Application in School and Community Settings
This paper describes a multimodality trauma treatment protocol (MMTT) for children and adolescents with PTSD. Based upon empirically validated cognitive-behavioral methods of treating PTSD in adults and anxiety and aggression in children, MMTT was developed as a group intervention administered in schools to treat children and adolescents exposed to single-incident trauma resulting in PTSD. In this paper, the protocol development and outcome data are described, followed by a detailed overview of the protocol. Attention is given to clinical implications for both school and community mental health center application of the protocol.
