Session 3F: Expanding the CAC Landscape to Address Children and Families with Physical Abuse Histories: An Overview and Case Example of AF-CBT

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A national study found that childhood physical abuse rates were over 8 times the rate of sexual abuse; 84% of offenders were adults living in the home (Finkelhor et al., 2014). The NCA strategic plan recognizes the role of CACs in serving children with physical abuse histories. This presentation will describe research support and referral criteria for an evidence-based treatment for these children and caregivers: Alternatives for Families: A Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Kolko, Brown, et.al.). Case examples will illustrate implementation of AF-CBT at a CAC. Lastly, administrative considerations for implementing this treatment, which includes physically abusive caregivers, will be discussed.
