(4) Building Bridges: Caregiver Involvement in Child-Centered Play Therapy — February 2, 2024
Working with caregivers is one of the most challenging parts of a child therapist’s job. This workshop aims to demystify the process of working with caregivers alongside child clients in Child–Centered Play Therapy. Using the Child-Centered Documentation framework, we will explore case examples of working with caregivers alongside child clients, to identify the caregiver’s needs, work towards parenting goals in caregiver consults and increase caregiver buy-in by learning new tools for explaining how change occurs.
