This book offers a survey of the historical and theoretical development of the filial therapy approach and presents an overview of filial therapy training and then filial therapy processes. The basic approach of filial therapy is to train parents to act as therapeutic agents with their own children through a structured format of didactic instruction, demonstration play sessions, required at-home laboratory play sessions, and supervision in a supportive atmosphere. The book will also include a transcript of an actual session, answers to common questions raised by parents, children, and therapists, as well as additional resources and research summaries. Additional chapters will address filial therapy with special populations, filial therapy in special settings, and perhaps the most useful resource for busy therapists and parents, a chapter will cover variations of the ten-session model, to allow for work with individual parents, training via telephone, and time-intensive or time-extended schedules.
