This chapter reviews factors important to consider prior to initiating TF-CBT with youth and their parents. This includes the identification, screening, and assessment of appropriate clients ages 3 to 18 experiencing traumatic stress difficulties as a result of child sexual abuse (CSA) and/or related stressors. Assessment measures commonly used in the context conceptualizing and implementing a TF-CBT treatment plan with this population are described. The importance of integrating the information collected with knowledge of psychopathology, developmental psychology, and the empirical data relating to CSA to develop an individually tailored TF-CBT treatment plan is emphasized. Other factors that may enhance the therapy setting and therapeutic relationship thereby supporting the optimal implementation of TF-CBT are highlighted.
