Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Program (CAPP)

The goal of the Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Program (CAPP) is to provide participants with exposure to concepts that inform psychodynamic therapy with children and adolescents. One central focus is on the application of these concepts to a variety of clinical settings, including clinics, agencies, community mental health centers, hospitals, and private practice. The program provides a solid grounding in psychoanalytic principles while being attentive to the realities of clinical practice in the current mental health environment. The challenges and practicalities of providing in-depth treatment are discussed throughout the curriculum.

CAPP offers practitioners the opportunity to deepen and broaden skills in
• Individual psychodynamic psychotherapy with children and adolescents,
• Clinical assessment, and

• Parent work

This course is offered to distance learners via ZOOM.
