MFT-8206 - Early Childhood and Parenting Interventions

Semester Credits: 3 Weeks: 12

This course reviews theory and research on interventions for early childhood, emphasizing play therapy and parenting interventions. Since a developmental-informed approach is critical for early childhood, play therapy theoretical foundations and techniques will be explored in-depth. From a systemic lens, children’s emotional and behavioral difficulties are viewed in the context of the couple relationship, family structure, and parenting behaviors. As a result, students will learn to integrate several interventions for changing dynamics and behaviors within the parent system. Issues of cultural sensitivity and ethical practice will be considered for each topic discussed.
