Dissemination Task Force

Division 53 of the American Psychological Association (Society for Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology) in collaboration with the Center for Children and Families at Florida International University and The Children's Trust have worked together to build the Effective Child Therapy Online Education website.

ECT Online houses resources for both parents and professionals about evidence-based practices that promote child and adolescent mental health. You will find informational videos that overview the research literature for a particular intervention relevant to child and adolescent mental health. In addition, professionals can earn continuing education credit for watching our videos.

Parents and caregivers will find brief videos that are interviews with experts in specific problems experienced by families and children. We hope that these videos will provide useful information about mental health issues experienced by children and adolescents.
