Child Training Institute

For Mental Health Professionals Specializing in Child and Adolescent Therapy

The field of child development is evolving, and it is critical that mental health providers keep pace. The Child Training Institute (CTI) makes it easy for professionals to grow their skills so they can better support the children and families they serve.

Through interactive in-person and online trainings, we offer continuing education opportunities with the leading experts in mental health and child development, covering the pressing issues facing young people today. Our trainings are led by world-renowned experts who are leading research and best practices in treating children, teens, and families. Past trainers have included such respected minds as Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, Dr. Dan Siegal, Dr. Ken Ginsburg, and Dr. Alicia Lieberman.

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. Our programs offer new ways to approach the work, provide new skills, and support connections between clinicians. Support and training is essential to each individual’s professional development, as well as to the community of clients they serve.
