Brief introduction to this TRAUMA-FOCUSED CBT workbook: This workbook has been developed for use with children ages six to fourteen who have experienced one or more traumatic events. The activities in the workbook correspond to the treatment components of the Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF- CBT) model, which was developed by Judith Cohen, Anthony Mannarino, and Esther Deblinger (Cohen, Mannarino, & Deblinger, 2006). The intended use of the workbook is by master’s level mental health professionals who have also had training in TF-CBT and have read the manual on TF-CBT (cited above).

The fight or flight response was first described by Walter Bradford Cannon in 1929. It describes automatic bodily responses to perceived threat. These responses are evolutionary adaptations to stay safe in threatening situations. Here is worksheet visual – CBT – for PTSD:
