A resource guide to parent-child therapy in New York City.
parents whose children enter foster care are required to take parenting
classes. Usually, that has meant going to a weekly class. However,
another kind of parenting program is parent-child therapy, where a
therapist supports the parent in understanding and responding to the
child's emotional needs. This special resource guide from Rise
includes stories by real parents who have gone to parent-child therapy
as well as a list of organizations that provide this service.
Parent-child therapy helps parents and children build a lasting bond.
Klapper, director of the Parent-Infant Center at Mt. Sinai-St. Luke's,
explains how therapy can help parents and very young children build a
stronger relationship. Strengthening that bond early on, she says, can
benefit children throughout their lives.
