Virtual Child Parent Relationship Play Therapy Supervision Group

Join Dr. Maggie Parker for a weekly Play Therapy Supervision/Consultation Group via a Zoom meeting on Tuesdays starting Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at 4:00-5:00pm.

What is CPRT?
Child Parent Relationship Therapy is an evidenced based intervention wherein trained play therapists work with parents to teach and supervise the use of play therapy skills with their children. Parents work directly with therapists to gain the skills of reflective listening, responding to feelings, returning responsibility, choice giving, and limit setting. Parents gather toys to use weekly within 30 minute weekly play sessions. Parents record the sessions to bring back to the therapist, who then provides support and supervision. Originally intended to be used with parents through 2 hour weekly group sessions over a period of ten weeks, this modality can be adapted to meet the needs of parents currently in isolation with their children.

This supervision group will help you assist parents as they begin to provide play therapy at home. CPRT requires play therapists provide therapeutic understanding, psychoeducation, and supervision each session- all within the new online format. Gathering weekly can assist clinicians as they begin this new practice by providing support, education, and tips and insights to provide clinical growth.

For those clinicians working on their RPT or RPT-S this will count as one group play therapy supervision hour.

Individual supervision/consultation is also available by scheduled appointment.

Cost: $75.00 per group supervision.
