Unlocking Parental Resistance: 6 Reasons and Strategies for Overcoming
In today’s episode, we delve into the topic of engaging resistant parents, a common frustration among child-centered play therapists. From discussions in the Six Figure Play Therapist Coaching and the CCPT Collective that I host, it’s clear that many therapists face the dilemma of parents who express resistance in various forms, such as threatening to withdraw their child from therapy or limiting session attendance. As child-centered play therapists, we find ourselves in a unique situation where we must navigate relationships with both the child, our client, and their parents, who are crucial to the therapeutic process. I share my insights into the top six reasons behind parental resistance and offer strategies to address these challenges effectively.
