Event Details

Are you seeking to enhance your therapeutic skills in helping young children and their caregivers heal after family violence and trauma? Do you want to know more about clinical training in evidence-based child-parent psychotherapy?

The Berry Street Childhood Institute and Australian Association for Infant Mental Health are very pleased to announce this unique half day forum on Psychotherapy Approaches with Infants: relational assessment and repair.

This forum is an introduction to Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), a relational repair intervention which integrates psychoanalytic, attachment, and developmental psychopathology perspectives with the goals of promoting healthy child development through enhancing safety and reciprocity in child-parent relationships. Initially developed for children and their mothers affected by family violence, the intervention is uniquely tailored to address both the emotional impacts and dynamic family violence risks experienced by children and their mothers.

The forum will introduce and explore CPP as it is applied in the Tulane Infant Team in New Orleans by experienced CPP trainers and clinicians, as well as how it is being applied in an Australian context. We invite you to join us to hear from leading international and local experts in the field including Julie Larrieu (USA).
