Building Trust

This course is about working with parents of children we treat in Occupational therapy by encouraging positive communication and bridging that gap. Virtually all child therapists work-in some way or other with parents. This work takes many forms, such as separate meetings with parents as an ongoing part of the treatment, direct work with the parents instead of work with the child, or inclusion of parents in the therapy sessions themselves. These are some of the combinations that can be applied to have a two-way dialogue to increase the chances of success of our work as therapists.
