The Center for Prevention and Early Trauma Treatment is a NCTSN Category II Center whose mission is to address persistent gaps in prevention and early childhood treatment of young children and families impacted by trauma and adversity.
We do this by:
Expanding state and regional early childhood systems of care
Collaborating with care models to create a trauma-informed continuum of care
Coordinating training for the early childhood mental health workforce
Expanding trauma-informed reflective supervision to early childhood community providers
Increasing access to validated measures to address social determinants of health
In partnership with the National Center for Child Traumatic Stress (NCCTS), CPETT’s online training modules provide core concepts on trauma and young children in manageable, meaningful portions that allow professional to learn and train in accordance with their busy schedules. These modules are currently in development and will be ready for launch in 2023.
CPETT offers free training opportunities in a number of evidence-based model in new regions where Child First is replicating. These include Child-Parent Psychotherapy, Circle of Security and the DC:0–5™ (Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood).
CPETT offers free consultation in areas where we are replicating Child First. Consultation services are provided by our infant and early childhood endorsed mentors. For more information about individual and group consultation opportunities click here for more information.
Child First is an evidence-based, intensive, early childhood model that works with the most challenged young children and their families, helping them heal from the damaging effects of stress and trauma. Learn more about Child First and how you can bring it to your area.
