What’s Happening

PMTO Informed Training

Throughout the year, we provide no-fee, 2-Day PMTO Informed trainings for clinicians interested in becoming PMTO/PTC certified and for anyone who works with children (child care workers, school staff, medical clinic staff, etc.) This training is not the full training needed to be certified but is a required step for those interested in applying for the PMTO State Trainings. It provides a look into a few of the components of PMTO: Encouragement, Directions, and Emotional Regulation. Please see our PMTO informed training section for more details and to register.

Michigan PMTO hosts a State Conference every other year. The conference is free to attend and offers important updates, reviews curriculum, and focuses on setting the clinicians up for success in their work with families across the state. It also provides an excellent venue to connect and collaborate with clinicians across the state to share and brainstorm new techniques and clinical ideas.
