Nebraska Resource Project for Vulnerable Young Children


The Nebraska Resource Project for Vulnerable Young Children (NRPVYC) works to improve the well-being of maltreated young children and their families in Nebraska. Led by Project Director Kelli Hauptman, NRPVYC focuses on Early Childhood Mental Health, Reflective Practice, and Court Infusion by providing training programs, communities of practice, evaluation, and project management and support.

For Early Childhood Mental Health (ECMH), NRPVYC provides therapist training programs in Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), supports a community of practice for ECMH therapists, and offers outreach and training on ECMH to court and early childhood professionals. For Reflective Practice, NRPVYC's Nebraska Center on Reflective Practice (NCRP) utilizes the FAN model of reflective practice developed by the Erikson Institute to deliver training and reflective consultation to early childhood, child welfare, and court professionals. For Court Infusion, the NRPVYC develops, assesses, and supports projects in juvenile courts across Nebraska to improve outcomes for young children in foster care.
