Parent Sessions: An Essential Part of Play Therapy

Explaining Play Therapy to parents can be difficult. Yet, parents are a huge part of a child’s life and an essential part of their treatment. This experiential workshop will help the therapist learn how to talk to parents so that they will listen and understand. Participants will leave the training with a specific format for a typical parent session. The trainer will provide playful techniques to help parents manage their child’s behaviors and feel more confident in their role of parenting.

  2. Learn how to talk to parents so that they understand what they can do to help their child.
