CPRT 101: Foundations in CPRT, 2-Day Foundational Training

Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) is an evidence-based, culturally-responsive intervention with over 35 controlled outcome studies demonstrating its significant beneficial effects on reducing children’s behavior problems, reducing stress in the parent-child relationship and increasing caregiver empathy. CPRT focuses on fostering a secure and attuned caregiver-child attachment and empowering caregivers to make a significant difference in their children’s lives. In this unique approach, professional play therapists experienced in Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) train and supervise caregivers to become therapeutic agents in their children’s lives through the use of CCPT principles and skills. Using a format of didactic instruction, demonstration play sessions, required weekly 30-minute play sessions and supervision, caregivers are taught CCPT attitudes and skills to facilitate sensitivity to, and understanding of their child’s underlying needs.

This is a practical “how to” workshop will fulfill partial requirements towards certification as a CPRT Facilitator. Based on the presenters’ experience, demonstrations, and viewing video segments of the inner-workings of a CPRT group co-lead by Dr. Bratton and Dr. Garry Landreth, participants will learn: how to teach child-centered play therapy skills, toys and materials needed, techniques for involving caregivers in the learning process, balancing training and meeting caregivers emotional needs, utilizing group dynamics, and facilitative supervision strategies. CPRT’s substantial evidence base, preventative nature, and relatively brief treatment time frame make this treatment model attractive in today’s mental health climate. CPRT received the 2010 Best Practices in Parent/Family Education Award and was recently recognized by the Donaldson Adoption Institute as the therapeutic parent training model with the strongest evidence base for working with adoptive/foster families.

* Participants must have completed CCPT 101 prior to registration

Location: 
University of North Texas

CCPT 101: Basics in Child-Centered Play Therapy, 2-Day Foundational Training

Children often have difficulty verbalizing their thoughts and feelings, which may produce obstacles for the child therapist or counselor. Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) is a unique evidence-based counseling approach in which the relationship between therapist and child is the foundation for therapeutic change. In CCPT, the healing factor is identified as the relationship between play therapist and child. Relationship is based on clear communication between therapist and child, yet the child communicates through play. The therapist provides attitudinal conditions and developmentally appropriate materials to facilitate free expression and self-directed play of the child. In a safe environment, the child moves toward self-enhancing behaviors and ways of being. This workshop is intended to present step-by-step introductory methods on how to help children accurately express themselves to the counselor in their own language of play. This workshop will offer a process for developing healing relationships with children, as well as help counselors use play therapy to reach treatment goals. Play therapy will be described and demonstrated in detail regarding its use and effectiveness with challenging children who present in both community and school settings. Participants will learn the CCPT treatment protocol as well as actively engage in CCPT skills throughout the workshop experience.

This workshop serves as the introduction to CCPT certification. Participants will earn continuing education credits as well as complete the first educational component toward CCPT certification. Completion of this workshop allows the participant to have a greater understanding of CCPT and begin to practice basic CCPT skills. Participants who wish to practice CCPT as a therapeutic approach will need to complete CCPT 201: Child Centered Play Therapy Practice and Application.
