Short-term Effective Youth Trauma
Treatment & CAMFT Update
Laura C. Strom is a Stanford-trained trauma therapist who worked for the Stanford Early Life Stress Research Program. She will introduce Stanford Cue-Centered Treatment: A multi-modal treatment for youth suffering post-traumatic symptoms. Laura was one of two therapists in a 3 year clinical research trial testing this cutting edge trauma treatment with traumatized youth. This 15-18 session intervention had excellent results with youth experiencing a 65% drop in posttraumatic symptoms, and 50%+ drops in depression and anxiety.
In this presentation, attendees will learn about the latest research and trauma treatment techniques which can be used with both adults and children. Clinicians will come away with an effective treatment plan for clients who are suffering with post-traumatic symptoms, anxiety or panic attacks, and will learn some techniques experientially. A handout will outline Stanford Cue-Centered Treatment, and include a Feelings Thermometer (A. Wagner) and Body Map (Kara).
The presentation on trauma treatment will be followed by an update on important issues affecting our profession and CAMFT as well as on the state organization's process and dynamics as Laura is our newly-elected CAMFT President. Q & A to follow.
