CPRT &
FILIAL THERAPY

When children have problems, sometimes they don’t have the words to talk about them. Play gives children a way to communicate feelings they don’t understand or can’t express any other way. Play therapy has been shown to be an effective intervention with children for a variety of behavioral and emotional difficulties.

Child-Parent-Relationship Training (CPRT) – also called Filial Therapy – is a research-based, 10- 12week parenting program that teaches parents how to use some of the same skills that play therapists use to help children experiencing social, emotional or behavioral problems.
