Therapeutic Approaches

Child-Parent Relationship Therapy

At Georgia Family Therapy, we deeply value the bond between parents and their children. Our Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) is a specialized service that centers on strengthening and enhancing this essential relationship, ultimately fostering a nurturing and empowering environment for every family member.

What is Child-Parent Relationship Therapy?

Child-Parent Relationship Therapy is a therapeutic approach that focuses on improving the relationship between children and their parents or caregivers. Rooted in principles of play therapy, CPRT encourages parents to engage in therapeutic play sessions with their children, guided by trained therapists. Through this approach, parents gain insight into their child's world, learn to understand and respond to their child's emotional needs, and help their child navigate life's challenges.

How Does CPRT Work?

In Child-Parent Relationship Therapy, parents are active participants in their child's therapeutic journey. The therapy sessions are structured to provide a safe, nurturing space where parents and children can interact, play, and communicate. The therapist supports parents in honing their empathetic listening skills, setting limits, and recognizing and responding to their child's emotional needs. Over time, these therapeutic interactions help improve the parent-child relationship, nurture emotional connectivity, and provide parents with a greater understanding of their child's emotions and behaviors.

Who Can Benefit from CPRT?

Child-Parent Relationship Therapy can benefit a wide range of families. Whether you're dealing with typical behavioral challenges, navigating major life transitions such as divorce, coping with trauma, or simply seeking to enhance your connection with your child, CPRT can be a transformative tool. The approach is suitable for families with children aged 3 to 10 years old, but the principles and skills learned through CPRT can benefit and be adapted for adolescents and teenagers as well.

How Can CPRT Help You Reach Your Goals?

At Georgia Family Therapy, our goal is to equip families with the skills and understanding necessary to foster personal and collective growth. With CPRT, parents often report an increased understanding of their child's inner world, improved communication within the family, and a greater sense of connection and harmony at home. As parents learn to acknowledge and validate their child's emotions, children feel seen, heard, and understood, often leading to a decrease in problematic behaviors and an increase in self-confidence and resilience.
