Parents as Healers: Bringing the Caregiver into the Healing Process Through Play and Home-Based Strategies

Therapists are increasingly interested in the value of including the caregiver in impactful and fun ways in treatment sessions. This workshop will teach an overall approach, “Parents as Healers” where parents/caregivers are dynamically involved in their child or adolescent’s therapy. Participants will learn to incorporate caregivers in collaborative planning, directive play therapy, cognitive behavioral play therapy, playful psychoeducation, effective parent training and more. They will also learn about evidence-based parent-led therapies. A combination of PowerPoint lecture, video, discussion and experiential activities will be provided to make the learning multi-sensory and lively.
