Title: An Introduction to a Foster/Adopt Parenting Model in Play Therapy

Description: Join us for a brief overview on working with parents of foster/adopt children in play therapy, and an introduction to Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI). This presentation will also include a discussion about how parenting a child from a hard place differs from that of other children. Practical parenting skills will also be reviewed to help with the difficulty/challenges that arise and to help parents become more playful and engaging with children from hard places.

Learning objectives:

1) Watch and discuss TBRI: An Overview.

2) Learn basic principles of TBRI and how they help foster/adopt families in play therapy.

3) Learn what the Life Value Terms are and how to use them with parents in play therapy.
