Working with parents/caregivers in the practice of the theoretical model of Child-Centered Play Therapy is one of the more complex components of the theory. Do you have a plan for when you will connect with them? How will you build your relationship with them? How do you help them understand the process of CCPT? How will you know if they have concerns about the process? Join us to explore strategies to engage parents and caregivers throughout the CCPT therapeutic process to keep them on board with utilization of CCPT to address the concerns for their child.
- Participants of this workshop will assess the benefits and disadvantages of gathering background on children engaged in Child-Centered Play Therapy and identify the typical stages of Play Therapy as described by Louise Guerney, as well as the Therapeutic Powers of Play as described by Schaefer and Drewes.
- Participants of this workshop will assess the expectations of parents in parent consultation and identify the five components of the Child-Centered Parent Consultation Model.
- Participants of this workshop will identify when termination is indicated in Child-Centered Play Therapy and assess the process of termination.
