CHILD-PARENT RELATIONSHIP THERAPY
is a play therapy-based treatment program for young children presenting with behavioral, emotional, social, and attachment challenges. It is based on the premise that a secure parent-child relationship is the essential factor for a child’s well-being.
In a supportive group environment, parents learn skills to respond more effectively to their children’s emotional and behavioral needs.
In turn, children learn that they can count on their parents to reliably and consistently meet their needs for love, acceptance, safety, and security.
You will learn specific skills grounded in the principles and procedures of Child-Centered Play Therapy that focus on establishing or enhancing a secure attachment with your child and helping you attune to and respond to your child’s underlying needs rather than focus on problems. You will learn to limit your child’s problem behavior, while demonstrating empathy and respect.
