The Institute of Child Psychology was founded to educate parents and professionals on issues pertaining to children’s mental health and to promote the psychological and emotional well-being of children and adolescents.
Our mission is to empower caregivers (i.e., parents, teachers, therapists, social workers, psychologists) by giving them pertinent insights, skills and tools necessary to help children thrive.
The Institute of Child Psychology is dedicated to parents, caregivers, and educators who wish to come together to learn about the latest research, innovations, and techniques pertaining to children’s mental health and attachment-based parenting practices. All courses are delivered by children’s mental health professionals.
We believe that everyone should have access to affordable mental health resources.
