Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT): A Research Based Filial Therapy Model (2 day Training)

July 29th-30th 2021
This training in the CPRT model developed by Sue C. Bratton and Garry L. Landreth focuses on the dynamic relationship facets of training parents to be therapeutic agents in their children's lives. CPRT places will be allocated on successful application.

Due to popularity, places on all of the above are confirmed on a "first paid, first serve basis", and each course going ahead is subject to recruitment. As with all university short courses, the normal minimum age for enrolment is 18.

Short courses and CPD events are not academically or professionally validated, accredited, or approved (unless specifically mentioned) and therefore do not, in themselves, lead to either an academic or professional award. For CPD purposes, participants successfully completing a short-course or CPD event can be awarded a certificate of attendance.
