The Behavior Clinic and Early Pathways Mental Health Program for Preschoolers in Poverty
February 21, 2018
The Behavior Clinic, a partnership between Penfield Children’s Center and Marquette University, was founded in 2003 to provide in-home mental health services to preschoolers with behavior and emotional problems including trauma who come from families in poverty. In addition to directly serving over 400 children in Milwaukee County each year, the clinic trains graduate students and other professionals in our treatment program, and conducts applied research. The clinic’s Early Pathways Program has been endorsed as a highly effective evidence-based treatment program by SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices, the California Clearing House, and the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.
