Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)

Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)

For children ages 0 - 5

CPP is an evidence-based dyadic therapy that focuses on healing traumatic or stressful events within the context of the caregiving relationship.

When to Refer A Family to CPP

Consider referring to CPP when a child ages 0 to 5 has experienced any of the following:

  • Trauma
  • Loss
  • Ruptures in the parent-child relationship
  • Other adjustments

What Happens During CPP

CPP treatment bridges the child’s experience with the child and caregiver to help increase attachment, restore a normal developmental trajectory, and heal any ruptures in the relationship. The caregiver is encouraged to reflect on their own experiences to gain a better understanding of how their past is influencing their parenting today.
