Institute on Violence Abuse and Trauma

This is an interdisciplinary, hybrid Conference that attracts speakers and attendees from around the world. While we strive to include many

Child-Parent Psychotherapy Learning Community

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - Friday, September 19, 2014
San Francisco
Sponsoring Agency: 
University of California, San Francisco

In June of 2014, the San Francisco Early Trauma Treatment Network site will release an application for sites interested in participating in a National Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) Learning Community that will be held in San Francisco, California. This training meets criteria for an Implementation-Level CPP Course, so that participants who complete training will be eligible to be on the roster of trained CPP clinicians.

Priority will be given to sites from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) and sites applying to send an agency team comprised of a minimum of two clinicians, a supervisor, and a senior leader. If there is space, sites outside the NCTSN may also apply.
