MATCH Therapist Training



Location: The Baker Center, 746 South Street, Waltham, MA 02453.


The Modular Approach to Therapy for Children with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, or Conduct Problems (MATCH), is an evidence-based counseling program for children and teenagers, ages 6-15, and their families. Unlike most specific counseling programs, which focus on a single problem (e.g., anxiety only), MATCH is designed for multiple problems related to anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, and disruptive conduct, including conduct problems associated with ADHD. The MATCH program can give children and families a specific set of scientifically proven tools to help manage these problems that come up at home, at school, or with friends. Therapists who use MATCH have specialized strategies to customize each treatment to each family.

The training will take place Monday, September 11, 2023- Friday, September 15, 2023, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm daily.
