AF-CBT Session Guide

Only available to those enrolled in a training group

The material is divided into three areas:

  1. Fundamental skills or issues that may need to be addressed at any time (e.g., escalation in hostility, safety planning).
  2. Specific topics (clinical content) for review in a given session.
    Each topic has a topic at a glance page, a background rationale, the full material (with exercises), and home practice assignments.
  3. Handouts and worksheets designed to support each topic.

Other Materials

Other materials are available for use, including flyers and brochures for families who may be considered for AF-CBT or for community stakeholders/partners, clinical assessment materials, and practice checklists for monitoring treatment delivery and fidelity.
