Filial Therapy trains parents in some of the very same techniques that Play Therapists use! Through the implementation of special play sessions at home, the parent becomes a therapeutic agent in his or her child's life. This approach is helpful both for parents who wish to strengthen their connection with a child and parents who are experiencing tension or power struggles in the parent-child relationship.
Benefits of Filial Therapy include-
Regaining control as a parent
Helping your child develop self-control
Effectively disciplining & limiting inappropriate behavior
Understanding your child's emotional needs
Communicating more effectively with your child
Confused or frustrated by your child's behaviors? Need a brush up on parenting tools and strategies? Or do you just want to learn more about your child's developmental level? I offer parent consultations on a variety of topics for parents of children ages 3-17.
Child Abuse Prevention
As an authorized facilitator of Stewards of Children, I am able to train concerned adults to recognize, respond to, and prevent child abuse. This training is a great opportunity for parent groups, neighborhood organizations, schools, and community centers. Trainings are available in-office or in the community.
