Filial Therapy Training

mother and child b & wFilial Therapy Training is a 10-session training program in which parents are taught how to do non-directive play techniques with their own children, in order to provide play therapy in the home.  Thirty years of research has shown this technique to be very effective in helping children overcome behavioral, emotional or attachment problems.  Obviously, training in how to do Filial Therapy is a great skill for missionary parents to have in their toolbox, as help for a hurting child is not always readily available on the mission field.  Training sessions will be scheduled based upon the demand, and can be done once-a-week for 10 weeks, or in an intensive daily format in just two weeks.
