CBITS Online Live Curriculum

CBITS Online Live is an adaptation of Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS) designed to be delivered as a synchronous online group for middle and high school students. The 6-session curriculum includes the skill building sessions of the original (psychoeducation, relaxation, thought restructuring, and social problem-solving) with detailed instructions for how to implement online. It can be delivered as a weekly or twice weekly group. Because of the online group format and issues related to privacy, sessions devoted to individual sessions, trauma narrative, and exposure are not included in the adapted curriculum.

This adaptation is intended for use by clinicians previously trained in the model. The necessary supportive documents that are referenced in the session-by-session outline below are also available in pdf format upon request. We ask that clinicians let us know that they are using the curriculum by registering their groups with us online so that we can track usage and obtain feedback on the curriculum.

Clinicians should be sure to follow their school’s policies regarding parental consent and use of secure online video platforms. AIP staff are available to answer questions about implementation. If you would like to begin using the curriculum with students, please register your group using the link below and we will send you the pdf version plus additional supporting documents.
