What is it? How can I learn more? Next Training
I have been working with children and families in some capacity for the past 10 years. My current position is that of a certified play therapist so I regularly confront the challenges faced by many parents. My clients often express to me feelings of tension and frustration when their children misbehave. They are desperate for answers and reassurance along their journey.
While I have found that play therapy can be extremely beneficial it is not the all inclusive solution. I’m privileged to spend on average an hour a week with my clients providing them with a safe, authentic, and positive environment; however in order to achieve lasting change this dynamic must be developed within the home. This is where Child Parent Relationship (C-P-R) Training begins to bridge the gap between therapy and relationship.
What is it?
Child Parent Relationship Training is a research based model developed by Dr. Garry Landreth and Sue Bratton. Child Parent Relationship Training is an 8 week course that teaches parents how to use some of the skills that specialized therapists use with children who are experiencing social, emotional, or behavioral issues. CPRT helps you to build a different kind of relationship with your child, and your child will learn that they are capable, important, understood, and accepted as they are. How your child feels about themselves will make a significant impact on their behavior.
Child Relationship Training can help parents to:
- Understand their child’s worries and other feelings more fully
- Learn new skills for encouraging co-operation from their children
- Enjoy playing with their children and giving them positive attention
- Increase their listening skills and develop open communication with their children
- Develop self confidence as parents
- Become more able to trust their children
- Deal in new ways with frustrations in family life
Next Training: I’m excited to be leading the next training session beginning in September! I hope to see you there, and as always, safe travels on your journey!
