A 10-WEEK FAMILY “TRANSFORMATION” USING THE IN-HOME PLAY THERAPY PROGRAM
If your greatest desire is happy kids and a happy family, this is the most important message you’ll ever read!
Dr. Garry Landreth and Dr. Sue Bratton (considered by many to be the Godfather and Godmother of modern, child-centered Play Therapy) originally published this training in 2006.
CPRT is a 10-week, facilitator-led training program that teaches you how to conduct play therapy sessions with your child so that your child gets the therapy they need, and you build the relationship that transforms your family.
The reason CPRT works so well is because it addresses the root of children’s emotional and behavior dysregulation more completely and thoroughly than any other therapy that I’m aware of.
What sets this training apart are the facilitator led sessions, the weekly play sessions you conduct with your child, and the feedback you get by the facilitator about the play sessions.
And because you already have a relationship foundation with your child, the progress and healing happens quicker, and is more deeply beneficial, than if a therapist would have to start from scratch building a relationship with your child.
You’re ready for your child to get better, and your family to start being happy again!
Play Therapy and CPRT addresses the ROOT of the problem
Before we get to the course outline, let’s review the purpose of this training.
The root of your current struggles is that you have a fundamental breakdown in the RELATIONSHIP with your child.
Play Therapists have been studying this for over 50 years.
What makes Play Therapy skills and techniques so effective, is not the skills or techniques… it’s the RELATIONSHIP the therapist builds with the child.
Typically, in the first three to four weekly sessions, a play therapist and the child go through the bonding or rapport building phase.
The child learns that the therapist unconditionally accepts them as they are. No judgments about their behavior or personality… just unconditional acceptance.
Once the child bonds with the therapist and an environment of healing is created and established, they are then free to work through their issues. Then parents see dramatic changes in the child at home and school.
If there were a door that you had to walk through to be a happy family, the RELATIONSHIP with your child is the key that opens that door.
What you can look forward to in this training
Over the course of the 10 week training, you will notice your family life looking different!
▶ Kids behave appropriately – Your kids will learn how to self-regulate, self-control, and to behave in self-enhancing ways.
▶ Fun has been restored to your family – Because you’ve introduced a component of PLAY back into the relationship with your kids.
▶ You’ll enjoy being together again – You’re able to do things together as a family that behavior prevented before.
▶ You will be calm and in control – You’ll know how to handle power struggles, outbursts, tantrums, and meltdowns with confidence.
In 10 weeks, you will gain confidence in your skills as a parent.
▶ Regain control as a parent – You’ll be in control of your family situations (in a healthy way, not a “control freak” way!)
▶ Help your child develop self-control – You’ll return responsibility to your child and offer meaningful choices.
▶ Effectively discipline & limit inappropriate behavior – You’ll set effective limits neutrally and calmly.
▶ Understand your child’s emotional needs – You’ll better relate and recognize your child’s feelings and desires.
▶ Communicate more effectively with your child – You’ll notice cues and gain perspective that you didn’t have before.
You will learn the Basic Principles, Philosophies, and Beliefs of Play Therapy that build the relationship with your child
▶ “Being With”
Possibly you’ve heard the phrase “be present” with the person you’re interacting with to have deeper, more meaningful communication. This is especially true for kids. To emotionally connect with your child, CPRT teaches you how to “be with” them.
▶ Focus On The Relationship
The RELATIONSHIP is the key to happy parents and kids. Skills and techniques help to build the relationship, but are not the reason the system works. Stay focused on the relationship.
▶ Recognizing Feelings
Kids are emotional, not rational. To connect with them, you must first recognize their feelings and reflect it back to them. Reflecting Feelings is the first, most foundational skill you will learn.
▶ Setting Limits
Everyone wants to know effective discipline techniques. But limit setting is more than just correcting behavior – it allows the child to develop self-control and self-regulation.
Almost all power struggles stem from a feeling of powerlessness. Giving choices to your children is an integral tool to empower them to feel more in control of their circumstances, but also practice decision making skills.
Every child must develop a healthy sense of self to behave in self-enhancing ways among family and peers. You will learn the formula for helping your child to discover who they are and what they are capable of.
▶ Encouragement Vs. Praise
You will NEVER have to say “Good Job!” again. Praise is crippling for kids, so you will learn the difference, and why encouragement provides kids with what they need to persevere, problem solve, and become internally motivated.
CPRT: Expectations and requirements
So that we can ensure your success in this program, there are certain things that your facilitator and I expect from you, and things that you can expect from us.
▶ 10 week commitment – Only about 2 months to a completely transformed relationship.
▶ 30-minute weekly play sessions in the home – You get to have FUN with your child!
▶ Completing homework assignments – Helpful skill based practice for real life parenting moments.
▶ Obtaining materials and toys – You probably already have most of them.
▶ Video-recording of home play sessions – So that we can give you immediate feedback and encouragement.
▶ “I can do it” attitude! – Because you can and we will help you every step of the way.
From me and your Facilitator:
▶ Training materials – All material and curriculum provided and included.
▶ Instruction – Weekly training videos and modules to teach you everything you need.
▶ Email support – Questions along the way? Just reach out.
▶ Encouragement – Support and pep-talks freely given.
▶ Feedback – Weekly review of homework, play sessions, and practice so that you can hone your skills.
The Disclaimer That Couldn’t Be Any Plainer!
How successful you are at this program is dependent on many factors, but mostly on how hard you work, and how seriously you accept and believe in the play therapy core philosophies, and how often you practice and use the skills and techniques.
Everyone gets something from this program. But the participants that get RADICAL changes in their family for the better, put the hard work in because they believe their family’s future is worth it.
Everyone’s individual results will vary, but those that take this training seriously and work hard, get the best results. It’s that simple.
So now that the disclaimer is out of the way, let’s look at what you learn each week.
Every week, you will log into the online training site. The week is usually structured by watching several videos of me teaching you the week’s training.
Then there is a weekly homework component (it’s really easy and very practical!)
In weeks 4-10, you will conduct a 30-minute, special play session with your child, focusing on the single skill learned that week.
Finally, each week, you will meet with your facilitator over a Zoom video conference call to go over the homework, watch your play sessions, and give you feedback on the course content.
Here are the topics learned week-by-week:
- Week 1: Laying the foundation for building a better relationship
- Week 2: “Being with” your child
- Week 3: Play sessions do’s and don’ts
- Week 4: Limit Setting (A-C-T)
- Week 5: Why to use Limit Setting
- Week 6: Choice Giving 101 & common problems in play sessions
- Week 7: Esteem building responses
- Week 8: Encouragement vs. praise
- Week 9: Advanced Limit Setting & Limit Setting outside the play session
- Week 10: Things to remember & overview
After week 10, we encourage you to continue your play sessions with your child-of-focus, or you can start play sessions with another child.
We have support options available beyond the 10-week CPRT course to help you continue and better your Play Therapy skills.
Most importantly, you are in The Kid Counselor “Family”, which means you have access to a community forum, moderated by Play Therapists, podcasts, videos, and tons of blog posts that will reinforce and help you “tweak” your new skills.
CPRT is just the beginning of your journey towards happy kids and a happy family! We will be with you every step of the way.

Device Detox is an online video training series, based on my book of the same name, with practice worksheets and examples. One of the leading causes of behavior struggles and high levels of anxiety right now is screen addiction and device overuse. This is a system and framework to help find balance without the behavior issues.
Beyond the Workbook
This is a 13 week video training to encourage you, equip you, and help you continue play sessions with your child after completing the 10 week CPRT program.

Compare that to in-office therapy…

And it’s compressed into a 10-week program.
We encourage you to continue your play sessions with your child past 10 weeks, so that your child gets the full course of therapy needed to properly work through their issues. But you’ll have all the training you’ll need already completed in just 10 weeks.
Payment is processed online, via credit card, in two equal, monthly payments of $875.
