Parental resistance to play and family therapies can take many forms. Some parents expect that therapy alone will “fix” their children, others are skeptical about the entire process. This 4-hour video-based online course explores types and sources of parental resistance to play and family therapies and provides viewers with practical methods for working with challenging families. This course includes ways to explain play therapy and Filial Therapy to parents as well as ways to handle many different forms of resistance. The course includes video demonstrations of the methods by Dr. VanFleet.



Delivery will be made as quickly as possible, but please allow 1-2 weeks, depending on Dr. VanFleet's travel schedule.
