What We Do

Our mission is to improve the health and functioning of infants, children, adolescents, and families coping with attachment difficulties, trauma symptoms, and significant behavioral-emotional challenges.

Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Training and Coaching

The North Carolina Child Treatment Program trains approximately 250 clinicians per year in one of the following evidence-based treatment (EBT) models:

  • Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
  • Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
  • Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS)

Clinicians participate in a rigorous learning collaborative training process and work with CTP master trainers and consultants to become proficient in a specific treatment model. After successfully completing this process, they are included in the NC CTP roster of clinicians.

NC CTP Public Roster of Clinicians

Clinicians must meet the following requirements to join the NC CTP roster:

  • Completion of a model-specific Learning Collaborative
  • Demonstration of clinical competence and adherence to treatment model standards

If the clinician has met these requirements, they will be added to the NC CTP roster of clinicians who are practicing evidence-based treatments. NC CTP audits this roster regularly to ensure that clinicians are maintaining high practice standards.

Treatment in Community-Based and Restricted Settings

NC CTP-rostered clinicians practice throughout the state of North Carolina, serving children in a variety of practice settings, including:

  • Homes
  • Schools
  • Mental health clinics
  • Residential treatment settings
  • Psychiatric residential treatment facilities (PRTF)
  • Juvenile Justice and other restricted facilities

Performance and Outcomes Data Platform

NC CTP, in partnership with the 3C Institute, has developed NC POP – the North Carolina Performance and Outcomes Platform. NC POP is a software program that:

  • Tracks how efficiently and effectively evidence-based treatment models are used to treat children and families
  • Allows clinicians, agencies, managed care organizations, and other stakeholders to better use, understand, and report on performance and outcomes data
  • Helps the North Carolina mental health community to help children get better more quickly

Collaboration with Professionals and State Entities

NC CTP strongly believes in the power of collaboration. We are using our experience, data, and innovative processes to:

  • Share data through NC POP
  • Conduct expert case-level auditing of program graduates
  • Provide public mental health infrastructure support
