  Abstract: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF–CBT) is one evidence-based treatment for post-traumatic stress (PTS) that has shown great promise. The Children's Initiative has used this treatment model successfully to alleviate symptoms of PTS as a result of witnessing domestic violence. When this treatment model is used within a cohesive community structure with maximum inclusion of all local agencies and coordinated referral efforts, it is highly effective as a response to domestic violence.
