Early Pathways

EP is a home-based, mental health services program, which is designed to treat and prevent disruptive behaviors in young children. The program comprises the following four components: strengthening the parent–child relationship through child-led play, maintaining developmentally appropriate expectations of children and cognitive methods for calmly and thoughtfully responding to disruptive behaviors, using positive reinforcement to strengthen prosocial behavior, and using time-limited strategies for reducing disruptive behaviors.

Targeted Populations: 
Child abuse and neglect, sexual abuse, intimate partner abuse, community violence, multiple and prolonged traumatic events, and complex trauma
