The Training Institute at the Baker Center specializes in the delivery of professional training in high quality, evidence-based interventions to mental health clinicians. Social workers, psychologists, counselors, and trainees participate in virtual, live, and hybrid programs with the goal of increasing access to effective, evidence-based treatment for children, adolescents, and families locally and abroad.
To increase effective implementation of learned interventions, the Training Institute includes clinical consultations with highly qualified professionals following the initial training. We strive to support the mental health clinicians who train with our faculty and positively contribute to a highly skilled workforce of trained professionals.

The Modular Approach to Therapy for Children with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, or Conduct Problems (MATCH), is an evidence-based counseling program for children, teenagers age 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, posttraumatic 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. Receiving training is the first step for clinicians to become certified as a MATCH therapist.
This intermediate level training is designed for certified MATCH therapists who plan to provide MATCH training and consultation to clinicians within their agency or organization. This training provides advanced training in the implementation of MATCH with children and families. Participants will also learn how to train and supervise clinicians in the MATCH approach and can work towards becoming a MATCH-certified supervisor.
Organizational Skills Training is an effective, evidence-based program designed to support children, teens, and their families in developing essential skill sets related to executive functioning. This program is specifically designed for children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and can also be used with children and families who demonstrate executive functioning difficulties. Clinicians will learn to conduct this intervention with families to improve the client’s organizational skills, time management, planning skills, and task completion. Organizational Skills Training is empirically tested and proven to have positive effects on family functioning and academic productivity and performance.
