Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) is an evidence based practice for treating children birth to five who have been exposed to trauma – in the form of child maltreatment, sudden or traumatic death of someone close, witnessing of domestic violence, disruption of attachment; or multiple changes of placement. Young children may experience behavior, attachment, and/or mental health problems, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The primary goal of CPP is to support and strengthen the relationship between a child and his or her parent (or caregiver) as a means of restoring the child's sense of safety, attachment, and appropriate affect; and improving the child's cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning.
