Event description

Description

This workshop presents a brief overview of Child-Parent Psychotherapy a (CPP) and then offers multiple case vignettes to illustrate ways that CPP objectives and the CPP framework may guide us as we strive to integrate fathers into this work and honor their place in their children’s lives. The workshop explores the role that our own biases may play in keeping fathers out of treatment, ways to move from dyadic to triadic intervention, processes for working with fathers who have been the perpetrators of violence, and the importance of honoring gender and cultural differences when working with fathers.

Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) is an evidence-based treatment for children aged birth through five who have experienced a traumatic event. A central goal is to support and strengthen the caregiver-child relationship as a vehicle for restoring and protecting the child’s mental health. A young child’s question, “Can Daddy come here too?" reminds us to move beyond the mother-child relationship and open our minds and our treatments to fathers.
