Five Agencies Selected to Deliver Child Parent Psychotherapy to Young Children

Five children's mental health organizations in Connecticut were selected to begin training to deliver the evidence-based Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) treatment model. CPP is an intervention for children aged 0-5 who have experienced traumatic events and/or are experiencing mental health, attachment, and/or behavioral problems.
The agencies participating are: 
  • The Child and Family Guidance Center, Inc.
  • Community Mental Health Affiliates, Inc. (CMHA)
  • Connecticut Junior Republic, Inc. (CJR)
  • Cornell Scott Hill Health Center, Child & Family Guidance
  • Yale Child Study Center
The organizations were selected by CHDI to participate in a year-long Learning Collaborative funded by the Early Child Trauma Collaborative, a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) awarded to CHDI to extend trauma-focused services to young children in Connecticut.
