CPP and PPT: Choosing an evidence-based treatment for young children following trauma

Presented by:

Julie Larrieu, PhD

Devi Miron Murphy, PhD

Charles H. Zeanah Jr., MD

DATE:

October 30, 2023

Overview:

With a growing evidence base for a variety of interventions in infant mental health, the question arises, what works for whom? Though we are not as a field yet able to answer this question, it is an important direction for future research. In the meantime, infant mental health clinicians must make decisions about which treatments to implement. Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) and Preschool Posttraumatic Treatment (PPT) are two well-established treatments for young children who have experienced trauma. After briefly reviewing research supporting these two approaches, we will have a discussion about how two experienced clinicians think about best approaches.

Ethical Dilemmas in Infant Mental Health

Presented by:

Alison Steier, PhD

Charles H. Zeanah Jr., MD

Paula Zeanah, PhD, MSN, RN, FAAN

DATE:

March 21, 2023

Overview:

Several features of infant and early childhood mental health present unique challenges: the breadth of this multidisciplinary field, the relationship focus, the urgency of action when early support and intervention is needed, and the influence of social and cultural contexts of caregiving and development. Current efforts to address the clinical complexities of IECMH provide important resources to inform ethical decision-making. However, these efforts stop short of the detail of formal ethical codes, which not only provide guideposts for clinicians but also communicate expectations about the field the public can appreciate. Our goal is to stimulate a robust dialogue about the types of ethical issues unique to infant and early childhood mental health, including the challenges and best practices in recognizing and addressing ethical issues.

Case vignettes and select evaluation findings are shared.

Counter-transference in the Treatment of Maltreated Children

Presented by:

Charles Zeanah, MD

Anna Kelley, PsyD

DATE:

January 11, 2022

Overview:

Clinicians treating maltreated children and their families often find themselves attempting to navigate between polarized interests that elicit intense reactions within themselves. Many maltreated children and caregivers have experienced intersecting layers of personal, intergenerational and historical traumas. Action or inaction of complex systems may also elicit intense reactions in clinicians. In this webinar, we consider specific manifestations of countertransference. We discuss common manifestations of countertransference and consider strategies at multiple levels for managing reactions.
