Child and Parent Relationship Therapy

What is CPRT?

Child and Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) is a model of filial therapy founded upon the child-centered play therapy philosophy. It is an evidence-based parent-training intervention for treating children experiencing a wide range of social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. This unique approach involves parents by teaching them how to use play therapeutically so that the communication gap between parent and child can be diminished and their relationship enhanced. Therapists use both didactic and process oriented approaches in order to facilitate the creation of a relational conduit between the parent and child. This workshop focuses on principles, goals, specific methods, and skills utilized in CPRT. An existing knowledge of child-centered play therapy is highly recommended.
