From the dad with doubts to the mom with mixed emotions, not all parents are sold on the idea of play therapy. The resistant parent is a parent who may have questions, shame, or confusion about the process. This webinar explores how to encourage parental understanding of the power of play and why it’s a key step in helping children heal.
Working with Resistant Parents in Play Therapy Objectives:
- Examine what is really going on when a parent shows signs of resistance
- Discuss why it is important to understand the parent’s point of view and why the parent may be hesitant about the play therapy process
- Describe what it takes to keep a parent engaged throughout the play therapy process
