In January and February of this year, the California Institute
for Behavioral Health Solutions (CIBHS) conducted a stakeholder
engagement process to help identify key learning in the
behavioral health system in response to the dual public health
crises of COVID-19 and structural racism.
Online learning is a type of distance learning that takes place
over the internet and has several different names, including
e-learning. CIBHS is expanding its Online Learning Courses to
offer blended teaching techniques for a variety of topics
pertinent to behavioral health students, providers,
administrators, and leaders.
Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT) is a an
evidenced-based and time-limited practice that aims to address
trauma in children and youth. There is robust outcome data from
randomized trials that speaks to the efficacy of this model in
not only addressing symptoms of trauma but also, depression,
anxiety, and behavioral problems. The conjoint work with
caregivers provides support in addressing the child’s trauma and
provides skills to caregivers to guide their child throughout the
treatment. The model developed by Drs. Judy Cohen, Ester
Deblinger, and Anthony Mannarino, is used for children and youth
ages 3 to 18 who have experienced one or more significant
traumatic life events resulting in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
symptoms or functional impairments.
CIBHS provides training and services, and technical assistance
and other consulting services to California counties and
providers. We are able to tailor our services to your needs. Tell

The Strengths Model is a recovery-oriented, evidence-based case
management model developed by Charles Rapp and colleagues at the
University of Kansas School of Social Welfare. It was developed
in the early 1980’s in response to traditional mental health
approaches that often focused on pathology and diagnosis, held
low expectations for what people with mental illnesses could
achieve in their life, and frequently used stabilization and
maintenance as measures of success.
