Grief and Trauma Intervention (GTI) is designed for children ages 7 to 12 with posttraumatic stress due to witnessing or being a direct victim of one or more types of violence or a disaster, or due to experiencing or witnessing the death of a loved one, including death by homicide. The purpose of the intervention is to improve symptoms of posttraumatic stress, depression, and traumatic grief. The intervention is conducted with children in a group or individual format in 10 sessions of approximately 1 hour with at least one session with the parent. The techniques used in the sessions are grounded in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and narrative therapy and include narrative exposure to the trauma (through drawing, discussing, and writing), development of an in-depth, coherent narrative while eliciting the child’s thoughts and feelings, development of positive coping strategies, and making meaning of losses.
