Child Parent Psychotherapy

Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) is a treatment for trauma-exposed children ages 0-5 experiencing mental health, attachment, or behavioral problems. This technique focuses on the child and the parent (or caregiver) relationship. The goal is to support and strengthen this relationship to improve the child’s emotional, mental, and overall behavioral health. The parent and child usually attend treatment sessions, addressing issues through purposeful play, healthy touch, and positive interactions. CPP can help children and parents understand and manage complicated feelings while fostering trust and healing.
