About Learning Collaboratives

The Illinois Child-Parent Psychotherapy Learning Collaborative (Il CPP LC) provides high quality mental health and trauma-focused training to clinicians and mental health providers working with children age birth through 5 years in a variety of settings. The Learning Collaborative is an 18 month training program for agencies to integrate Child-Parent Psychotherapy into their organizations. Agencies sponser groups of licensed and license-eligible clinicians to be trained by leading Child-Parent Psychotherapy trainers and therapists, using both in-person learning sessions and regular case consultation. Learning Collaboratives are considered one of the most highly effective strategies for deepening the mental health field’s ability to provide therapeutic services to families with very young children. This model has been used by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network to train mental health practitioners on a variety of evidenced-based practices and has been successfully implemented throughout the United States. In Illinois, the Learning Collaborative also provides periodic follow-up trainings and case consultation for participants after the initial training period has ended.

About Learning Sessions

Participants in the learning collaborative come together a few times each year for learning sessions, reflection, and best-practice sharing, which spans the course of 2-3 days.

Between learning sessions, members of each cohort participate in twice-monthly small group consultation calls with faculty members to discuss specific cases and review CPP principles
