Abstract

Witnessing community violence and experiencing abuse in the home are two examples of interpersonal trauma that can have a devastating impact on children and adolescents. Recent research on the treatment of children exposed to interpersonal violence has focused on cognitive-behavioral interventions, often delivered in school settings. We describe the application of a new manual-based psychotherapy protocol for treating pediatric trauma in a middle school. Two case studies illustrate the protocol application to children from an inner-city neighborhood. The Stanford Cue-Centered Therapy (CCT) is a short-term, multimodal therapy for youths who have experienced trauma, focusing primarily on exposure to trauma-related cues. These cases provide early data on the feasibility and effectiveness of providing CCT for high-risk youth within a school setting and training of school mental-health personnel in the use of the Stanford CCT Manual.
