Filial Therapy and Child-Parent Relationship Training
Filial Therapy trains parents in some of the very same techniques that Play Therapists use! Through the implementation of "special play time" at home, the parent becomes the 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 hosted in the community.
