Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS) for American Indian Youth

Year: 2022

With permission from the developers, the National Native Children’s Trauma Center (NNCTC) has provided training in CBITS with the understanding that it could be further modified by community members to best meet their needs. Previous trainings provided by the NNCTC have always encouraged group facilitators to identify how they might incorporate or modify the existing curriculum to ensure congruence with cultural beliefs and practices. The general feedback to those implementing CBITS and those attending CBITS training is often twofold: CBITS can be helpful in alleviating symptoms of traumatic stress for AI/AN students and portions of the CBITS manual as written should be altered to fit the need of these students better.
