TA-FC is a manualized trauma-focused practice rooted in the principles of Family Connections (FC), specifically designed to reduce risk factors for child maltreatment, increase protective factors, improve child safety, and reduce internalizing and externalizing child behavior. Themes of collaboration, reflection, and transparency are infused throughout three phases of treatment to assist families with their shared meaning making of their trauma experiences. TA-FC strategies include engagement, trauma-informed family assessment, safety building and enhancement, meeting basic needs, service plan, psycho-education, cognitive behavioral strategies, strengthening family and community relationships, emotion identification and affect regulation, and family shared meaning of trauma through narrative family work.
