Filial Therapy

Filial therapy is a type of family therapy that focuses on improving the relationship between foster or adoptive parents and their children. In this type of therapy, foster of adoptive parents are trained to become their child or young person's therapist, with the guidance of a trained filial therapist.

During filial therapy sessions, the therapist works with the parent to teach them skills and techniques that they can use to create a more positive and healthy relationship with their child or young person. The foster or adoptive parent is then encouraged to use these techniques during play sessions with their child or young person, with the therapist observing and providing feedback.

The goals of filial therapy are to improve communication, build trust, and enhance the parent-child or young person relationship. It can be particularly helpful for families who are struggling with issues such as behavioural problems, attachment issues, or communication difficulties.
