Child Parent Relationship Training

In today’s world, parenting can be difficult…but there’s no more important role one plays.

Is Child-Parent-Relationship Training right for you and your child?

As a parent, do you feel like you have lost control?
Do you find yourself yelling at your child more often than laughing with your child?
Do you feel you have lost touch with your child…don’t feel as close as you’d like?
Do you feel frustrated and find yourself saying the same things over and over again with no results?
Would you like for your relationship with your child to go back to the “way it used to be?”

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, please read on.


Child-Parent-Relationship Training (CPRT) – also called Filial Therapy – is a research-based, 10-week parenting course for parents with children under the age of 10 that teaches parents how to use some of the same skills that play therapists use to help children experiencing social, emotional or behavioral problems.
Research shows that motivated parents can be as effective as a professional in helping their children.
