This study aims to present the development result of the trauma focused – cognitive behavior therapy (TF-CBT) website and to test the percentages of agreement of the content, software interaction and technical aspects of TC-CBT website known as internet TF-CBT (iTF-CBT). The iTF-CBT module consists of five modules, namely i. Psycho Education; ii. TF-CBT; iii. Exposure Therapy; iv. Cognitive Therapy; and v. Anxiety Management. All of these modules are supported by 12 activities. Besides, this study is divided into two phases: i. Module development phase; and ii. iTF-CBT testing phase. The first phase involved data collection by conducting interviews with the experts as well as literature review. The second phase involved getting the percentages of agreement for the development of iTF-CBT among 42 trainee counsellors of the Sultan Idris Education University (UPSI). Results of this study indicate that the mean of percentages of the agreement between content, software interaction and technical aspects in the final test of iTC-CBT are high between 93 to 100 percents. These findings show that TF-CBT modules are applicable in the training to enhance efficiency of trauma and mental health counselling. As a result, this study has further expanded the theory and practices of counselling in the context of mental health particularly in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and trauma.
