Introduction to Filial Therapy: Using Child-Parent Relationship Therapy

This course provides 3 CE Hours (Non-contact) APT Credits.

Equip yourself with the skills and techniques needed to effectively deliver Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) in this comprehensive therapist training course.

Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) is a research-backed, evidence-based approach that empowers parents to build stronger, more nurturing connections with their children. Through structured play sessions, parents learn valuable skills to understand and respond to their child’s emotions and behaviors effectively. As a play therapist, learning to teach CPRT to parents provides you with the opportunity to equip caregivers with essential tools to foster a deeper, more emotionally secure bond with their children. By imparting these skills, you empower parents to become active partners in their child’s therapeutic journey, leading to more successful outcomes and enriching your role as a play therapist.
