Playful Activities for Traumatized Children

Cory’s Story and the variety of creative activities are specifically designed to help children cope with sexual abuse and trauma. Therapeutic games, art, puppets, and other engaging techniques address the eight components of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). Includes a reproducible story, assessment and treatment activities, and detailed parent handouts. Geared to children aged 4 to 12.
