Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program

The Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program (CAPP) is a program which follows a child’s development from birth through adolescence, examining, and building on the internal and external challenges inherent in the experience of the child.  Licensed students become more knowledgeable and effective in treating the complex intrapsychic, interpersonal, and behavioral issues utilizing evidenced based treatment approaches. Additionally, the program addresses the importance of initiating and maintaining alliances with parents during the treatment process.
