CBITS is a school-based programme intended to reduce post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and behaviour problems in pupils. It primarily targets low-income children (aged 10-15) of minority race/ethnicity who have experienced violent victimisation and/or trauma. Ten group sessions (with groups of 3-8 pupils) and 1–3 individual sessions are delivered.
