Additional Information about CPP

Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) is an intervention model for children aged 0-5 who have experienced at least one traumatic event (e.g., maltreatment, the sudden or traumatic death of someone close, a serious accident, sexual abuse, exposure to domestic violence) and/or are experiencing mental health, attachment, and/or behavioral problems, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The treatment is based in attachment theory but also integrates psychodynamic, developmental, trauma, social learning, and cognitive behavioral theories. Therapeutic sessions include the child and parent or primary caregiver. 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. Treatment also focuses on contextual factors that may affect the caregiver-child relationship (e.g., cultural norms and socioeconomic and immigration-related stressors).

Who should apply?

Community-based agencies currently serving children ages five and under are encouraged to apply. Agency teams are most successful when applying with a Senior Leader and at least three masters-level clinical participants (however, teams of four to six clinicians are recommended). Individual practitioners are also welcome to apply and may be grouped with other independent clinicians for support and peer supervision during the training.

Selected teams from Central North Carolina will participate in an 18-month training aimed at implementing and sustaining CPP within their agencies and communities.
