CBT II - Improving Health Outcomes for Orphans by Preventing HIV/STD Risk

Project Objectives

This project is a randomized controlled trial examining the effectiveness of Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), compared to receipt of usual care orphan services, in treating traumatic grief and traumatic stress among orphaned children and young adolescents in Moshi, Tanzania and Bungoma, Kenya.

Project Policy Impact Description

If Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) can be provided effectively by lay providers who are also supervised by lay providers, then there is a possibility that this intervention could be scaled up in a low resource environment.
