The Training Institute

The Child Study Center Training Institute promotes improvements in education and mental health services for children, youth, and families by supporting the adoption of evidence-based prevention and treatment programs in school, clinic, and community settings.

In collaboration with the Penn State Psychological Clinic, the Training Institute presents an annual workshop on an evidence-based prevention or treatment program. Designed for researchers, psychologists, social workers, advanced graduate students, and educators, these workshops are open to the university and broader community. Led by nationally-recognized intervention scientists, they offer training in a wide array of programs.
