Training Overview Description

About Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP). CPP is an intervention model for children aged 0-5 who have experienced as least one traumatic event and/or are experiencing mental health, attachment, and/or behavioral problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The treatment is based in attachment theory but also integrates psychodynamic, developmental, trauma, social learning, and cognitive behavioral theories.

The primary goal of CPP is to support and strengthen the relationship between a child and his or her caregiver as a vehicle for restoring the child's sense of safety, attachment, and appropriate affect, as well as, improving the child's cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning.
