Child-Parent Relationship Training (CPRT) is a 10-session intervention where play therapists teach caregivers the attitudes and skills necessary for addressing the emotional and behavioral issues they may be experiencing with their children. Research supports that parents trained in CPRT tend to report significant decreases in child behavior problems and parenting stress and improved relationships with their children.

This is a description and demonstration of "special playtime" according to Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT). CPRT is a 10-session model of filial therapy where parents are trained in basic play therapy attitudes and skills and apply them in 30-minute play sessions once a week with their child of focus (typically 2-10 years old).
