Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS) Training
Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS) is a school-based, group and individual intervention designed to reduce symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, and behavioral problems, and to improve functioning, grades and attendance, peer and parent support, and coping skills.
Participants will learn to screen students for trauma symptoms impeding progress in school and learn about a 10-week program to address these issues. The intended audience is school counselors, school psychologists, and other mental health professionals providing school based services such as CAPE, Lifeworks, Seeds of Awareness, and SAY. This is intended to provide schools a system of support for students who are continuing to have trauma symptoms related to the wildfires or other significant crises. You can learn more about this program at cbitsprogram.org.
SCOE is able to offer this training free of charge to participants thanks to the contributions from The Medtronic Foundation.
Participants currently employed by a Sonoma County school or district will receive a $350 stipend for their attendance at the two-day training. All materials will be included free of charge so that participants are completely ready to implement the program to support struggling students.
