NRPVYC is a major partner in expanding Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) in Nebraska.
The early years of a child’s life are critical in ensuring his or her social, cognitive and emotional well-being. Children who have been maltreated or are at risk for maltreatment frequently suffer from trauma, toxic stress and/or chronic neglect, all of which can greatly impact proper development. Evidence-based early childhood services can halt and mitigate the negative effects of maltreatment. Mental health services, such as Child-Parent Psychotherapy, can address socio-emotional concerns by rebuilding the relationship between the child and the caregiver with a focus on how emotions and past trauma impact the parent-child relationship.
In 2015, the CPP trainers in Nebraska (Jennie Cole-Mossman, Paula Ray, Mark Hald and Barb Jessing) formed a collaborative to create better consistency in practice. NRPVYC funded the development of a logo for the Nebraska Child Parent Psychotherapy Learning Collaborative. The collaborative is an association of the four CPP trainers that manages training, consultation, quality control and other areas collectively; however, there is no centralized, formal site that manages CPP.
