Document Type


Publication Date



Clinical psychological science has developed efficacious treatments for trauma-related disorders in youth. However, randomized trials investigating these treatments have disproportionally been conducted by American, university-based research labs. Dissemination and implementation of trauma-focused treatment in broader global and lower-resourced settings are needed. The current presentation describes efforts to adapt trauma-focused CBT (TF-CBT) for successful deployment in Puerto Rico after undergoing multiple natural disasters (Hurricanes Irma and Maria, and earthquakes) and a global pandemic.
