Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)

Children (birth through age 5) and their parents/caregivers.

Caregivers are the most important people in their children’s lives and are central to their development. Stressful experiences affect the parent-child relationship.

CPP can help when children have been through scary or painful events such as:

  • Loss of a loved one
  • Separation
  • Serious medical procedures
  • Abuse or violence at home or in the community
  • Family members have physical health or mental health difficulties
  • Caregivers would like help with parenting and improving parent-child relationships

Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event, like an accident, natural disaster, or being attacked. Immediately after the event, one may experience shock. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. This can greatly impact a persons ability to heal and move forward in life.

Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children

Commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) involves any child, or person under the age of consent. Sexual exploitation of children involves a range of abuses, including but not limited to: 

  • Prostitution of children
  • Child pornography
  • Internet-based exploitation
  • Requiring sexual favors in exchange for something the childs needs

Treatment Modalities

Trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy – TF-CBT is used with children and adolescents whohave experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. The goal is to reduce negative symptoms and help the child make senseof what happened. Sessions include both the child and the caregiver. Participation from the caregiver is vital in TF-CBT. Typically, parents are not trained in how to help their child deal with trauma. Participating in sessions allows caregivers toreceive support in parenting, process their own response to the event, and improve their bond with their child.
