Oct 8, 2013 8:30am ‐ Oct 8, 2013 11:30am

Credits: None available.

Standard: $59.00


Preadolescence is a difficult developmental stage that can negatively affect the parent-child relationship. This interactive workshop provides play therapists who are knowledgeable about Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) with developmentally responsive CPRT adaptations for working with parents of pre-adolescents.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the developmental needs of pre-adolescents and the necessary adaptations to CPRT
  • Identify the problems that arise in the parent-child dyad during pre-adolescents in order to adapt CPRT to the unique needs of this population
  • Demonstrate specific adaptations, such as developmentally appropriate play-based activities that parents can do at home as a substitute for the weekly play therapy sessions
  • Describe the importance of relationship-based play therapy interventions during this developmental stage
