This newly expanded and revised edition of the Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) Treatment Manual is the essential companion to the second edition of Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT). This second edition is updated to include four new CPRT treatment protocols and parent notebooks adapted for specific populations: parents of toddlers, parents of preadolescents, adoptive families, and the teacher/student relationship, along with the revised original CPRT protocol and parent notebook for ages 3-10.
This manual provides the CPRT/filial therapist a comprehensive framework for conducting CPRT including detailed guidelines, teaching aides, activities, and resources for each of the 10 sessions. The manual is divided into two major sections, Therapist Protocol and Parent Notebook, and contains a comprehensive CPRT Training Resources section along with an index to the accompanying online eResource.
The online eResource contains all necessary and supplemental training materials found in the six Appendices including detailed Study Guide, Marketing Materials, and Assessments, as well as the five CPRT protocols provided in a format that allows for ease of reproduction and enhanced usability. Protocols include:
As professional play therapists and filial therapists with extensive experience applying the principles of Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) and Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) as clinicians, teachers, and researchers, Bratton and Landreth provide an easy-to-follow guide for practitioners to successfully apply the evidence-based CPRT model. By using this manual and the accompanying eResource in conjunction with the CPRT text, filial therapists will have a complete package for training parents in CCPT skills to act as therapeutic agents with their own children.
"This a true second edition, with six new chapters! The applications for working with toddlers and tweens are specific, detailed, and wonderful. The discussion of how neuroscience aligns with CPRT is insightful. An exploration of CPRT research, along with the evidenced-based designation, adds informative value. Other adds for using CPRT with adoptive families, teachers, and discussion of cultural issues round out the core chapters for the 10-session model! It is a treat to read and experience!"

"CPRT has been empirically demonstrated to improve child-parent relationships and child behaviors. This protocol for therapists provides the essentials needed to implement the program successfully. The notebook for parents expands on the principles, allowing parents to apply them to home situations. These resources enable users to experience the full value of CPRT."
