Using Child-Parent Psychotherapy in a Home-Based Program Model
Ball, Jennifer; Smith, Mae
ZERO TO THREE, v35 n6 p22-27 Jul 2015
This article tells the story of a single mother, Maria, who has a history of trauma, and her 2-year-old daughter, Lina, as they learn, play, and heal together through the use of Child-Parent Psychotherapy, an evidenced-based, trauma-informed therapeutic intervention in a home-based program model. Through the power of play, Maria and Lina are able to build the secure connection that Lina needs to restore her sense of safety and attachment and take the risks she needs to be able to learn, grow, and thrive. Meanwhile, with the help of a strong therapeutic relationship and psychoeducation around trauma, Maria is also able to develop the regulatory skills and resilience she needs to regain an appropriate sense of safety and renewed sense of resilience to serve as Lina's primary protector, nurturer, guide, and teacher.
