Interdisciplinary Training Program in Child Abuse and Neglect

The Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center offers a two-semester Interdisciplinary Training Program in Child Abuse and Neglect for advanced students in medicine, dentistry, occupational therapy/physical therapy, psychology, law, social work, education, public health, nursing, sociology and related disciplines. Established in 1987, the ITP provides specialized training in clinical practice, prevention, policy formation, child advocacy, research and administration in the field of child abuse and neglect. More than 285 U.S. students and seven international students have participated in the ITP program.

Typically, MSW students take the ITP course sequence in their final (Concentration) year though students could possibly take it earlier than this. Students may earn up to 6 credits in the ITP program. Interested students should contact Anthony Natale, anatale@ou.edu, (405) 325-1408.
