Child on shoulders of parent | Child Parent Psychotherapy

Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) is an evidence-based intervention model for children aged 0-6¬†who have experienced at least one traumatic event and/or are experiencing mental health, attachment, and/or behavioral problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder. 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 goal of CPP is to support and strengthen the relationship between a child and his or her caregiver in order to restore the child’s cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning.
