Completion of this workshop is a prerequisite for application to NIRE’s: Certification Program in Child-Centered Play Therapy
The purpose of this two-day training program is to provide participants who have had previous training in Child-Centered Play Therapy with a comprehensive introduction to the Filial Family Therapy Model and to teach participants the principles and techniques for conducting all aspects of Filial Family Therapy (FFT), from intake through termination. The workshop emphasizes the building of participants’ therapeutic skills through the use of lecture, video examples, and supervised skills training. Participants will practice via role-plays the methods of training, supervising, and supporting parents as they learn to conduct therapeutic play sessions with their children. Attention will also be given to the specifics of organizing and initiating FFT in participants’ own settings. Please see the Professional Training Schedule for information on discounts. The workshop meets from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Lunch is on your own.
