October 2017 

We are excited to share that on July 13, 2017, The Illinois Department of Children and Families in partnership with Lurie Children’s Hospital launched the Early Childhood Court Team, or Safe Babies Court Initiative.  “Baby Court” is a collaborative between DCFS, Cook County Juvenile Court, Erikson Institute and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

This important collaborative aims to: increase awareness of the effects of trauma on very young children, improve local systems to decrease future court involvement, and improve case management and collaboration to improve child outcomes.

The Safe Babies Court has the unique opportunity to bring Child-Parent Psychotherapy to the attention of decision makers, and ensure this evidence based intervention is readily accessible. The Illinois CPP Learning Collaborative is proud to have trained numerous clinicians ready to serve this population. With the growing network of CPP clinicians and the Safe Babies Court Initiative, young children who have been exposed to trauma will have the opportunity for the care and treatment they deserve.
