Become a ICP Approved Provider

The Institute of Child Psychology is partnering with reputable licensed mental health providers through our affiliate program.

Our mission is to promote developmentally appropriate  mental health interventions for children & youth to foster  emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing.

We recognize that many Masters and PhD graduate-level mental health programs have quality course work that pertains to working with adults; but many are lacking developmentally appropriate training or course work pertaining to working with children and adolescents.

The intent of the ICP Approved Provider Affiliate Program is to develop international standards for the competent practice of children’s mental health.
