Child Parent Psychotherapy, posttraumatic stress disorder, early childhood interventions
Approaches for working with trauma-exposed populations have been critical in addressing the widespread prevalence and impact of trauma across the lifespan (Young et al., 2011). With early intervention being critical for reducing the impact of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms persisting throughout the lifespan (Buss et al., 2015), approaches for early childhood populations are essential. One such approach, Child Parent Psychotherapy, has been shown to be one of the most effective approaches for working with trauma-exposed populations under five years old (Lieberman et al., 2015). This literature review and training manual explores the current research and implementation of Child Parent Psychotherapy for clinical mental health counselors. The objective of this training is to provide more information on this empirically supported approach and its implementation to increase the field’s awareness of effective approaches for young children exposed to trauma.
