This chapter describes introductory parent and child individual TF-CBT sessions. The sessions describe methods designed to enhance therapeutic engagement, as well as factors to highlight when presenting the assessment findings, symptom development conceptualization, treatment rationale (e.g., gradual exposure) and the individually tailored treatment plan. Steps for building rapport with the child and engaging the child in the sharing of a neutral narrative as well as a baseline trauma narrative are outlined. In addition, creative suggestions for providing basic psychoeducation to both parents and children about the prevalence, dynamics, and impact of child sexual abuse (CSA) are offered. Finally, the critical role of the parent is highlighted with the initiation of parenting skills training, including a focus on practice activities that will be encouraged between sessions each week. Client therapist dialogues and case examples illustrate key concepts.
