Study Programs Based On Child-Parent Psychoterapy (CPP)

Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) is a treatment method developed for infants and young children and their parents, in the wake of exposure to traumatic events within the family, such as chronic illness, death, violence, abuse, or severe neglect. The method is based on the premise that trauma has an adverse effect on a child’s attachment to his parents, thereby jeopardizing his healthy development. The intervention aims to strengthen the parent-child relationship, so as to restore the child’s sense of safety, attachment to his parents, and self-regulation, and to improve his cognitive, social and behavioral functioning.
