Child Training Institute

For Mental Health Professionals Specializing in Child and Adolescent Therapy

The Child Training Institute (CTI) is now part of the Center for Children and Youth. This exciting new division of JFCS brings world-renowned, multidisciplinary experts leading the latest research and best practices to our professional trainings. We offer cutting-edge training to mental health professionals, including clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, psychologists who seek knowledge in the latest evidence-based treatments and techniques to help young clients and their families.

Working with children and adolescents who have experienced significant trauma and abuse, who struggle with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, or who lag in emotional, psychological, developmental, or intellectual growth can be challenging. The Child Training Institute is here to support the professionals who are, in turn, helping these children. We offer programs that encourage new ways to think about and approach the work, provide new skills, and support connections between clinicians and disciplines. We believe that on-going training is essential to each individual’s professional development, as well as the community of clients they serve.
