Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) is an evidence-based, culturally-responsive intervention with over 35 controlled outcome studies demonstrating its significant beneficial effects on reducing children’s behavior problems, reducing stress in the parent-child relationship and increasing caregiver empathy. CPRT focuses on fostering a secure and attuned caregiver-child attachment and empowering caregivers to make a significant difference in their children’s lives. In this unique approach, professional play therapists experienced in Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) train and supervise caregivers to become therapeutic agents in their children’s lives through the use of CCPT principles and skills. Using a format of didactic instruction, demonstration play sessions, required weekly 30-minute play sessions and supervision, caregivers are taught CCPT attitudes and skills to facilitate sensitivity to, and understanding of their child’s underlying needs. Participants will need the CPRT treatment manual and are encouraged to be familiar with the manual prior to the workshop.
