Rewire CBT by Roca

Rewire CBT is a seven-skill cognitive behavioral theory (CBT) approach designed for frontline staff to help young people learn and practice the lifesaving skills they need to heal from trauma and increasingly make healthier choices. Developed in partnership with Massachusetts General Hospital, Rewire CBT helps organizations overcome traditional barriers to access, preparing frontline staff to reach the highest-risk young people not consistently served in clinical settings.

Roca’s Rewire CBT training and coaching series is an interactive learning experience designed to prepare your organization to implement and integrate Rewire CBT as a critical behavior change intervention with high-risk young people. The core series is offered to groups of 20-25 frontline staff and supervisors, with additional coaching to build supervisors’ capacity to manage and sustain the practice.
