Education & Training

Intrinsically multi-disciplinary, the Yale Child Study Center (YCSC) is unique in its broad scope of clinical services, research, training, and policy and social innovation efforts, as well as local, state, national, and international collaborations. The work of the Center draws from fields including child psychiatry, pediatrics, genetics, neurobiology, epidemiology, psychology, nursing, social work, social policy, and more.

YCSC training programs share the common goal of providing an understanding of the process of adaptive and maladaptive development in children and their families. This understanding is gained through supervised clinical interventions with children and families, didactic experiences focusing on normal and abnormal development, and involvement in research initiatives designed to increase knowledge and inform clinical decision-making. YCSC professional development and training is geared toward a variety of professionals who serve children and families.
