Parenting with Theraplay (R) Summary

Parenting with Theraplay (R): Understanding Attachment and How to Nurture a Closer Relationship with Your Child by Helen Rodwell

Theraplay (R) is an attachment-focused model of parenting that helps parents to understand and relate to their child. Based on a sequence of play activities that are rooted in neuroscience, Theraplay offers a fun and easy way for parents and children to connect. Theraplay is particularly effective with looked after and adopted children.

By providing an overview of Theraplay and the psychological principles that it is based on, parents and carers will gain an understanding of the basic theory of the model along with practical ideas for applying Theraplay to everyday family life. Through everyday case studies and easy language, parents will gain confidence and learn new skills for emotional bonding, empathy, and acceptance in the relationship with their child.

Viv and Helen clearly bring the tried and tested Theraplay principles to parenting. This book gives many ideas and clear structure to help all parents provide an emotionally rich and connected parenting environment. -- Kim Golding, consultant clinical psychologist and author of Everyday Parenting with Security and Love
When family life has become a struggle, this book can show exhausted, demoralised parents the way back to having fun together, while repairing damage and building trust in their wounded child in the process. -- Ann Bell, Director Wales/Cyfarwyddwr Cymru, Adoption UK
Understanding and bringing to life the many ideas contained in this book will be of great value to us and to our children. -- Daniel Hughes, Ph.D. Founder of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy
This is a tranquil book where the reader is led by the hand and yet the practical ideas and accessible knowledge gifted to the reader, light up the brain like a Christmas tree. -- Veronica Read, Group Analyst and Educational Consultant and author of Developing Attachment in Early Years Settings and Building Positive Relationships with the Parents of Young Children
Written in a helpful, kind and practical way that doesn't make you feel as though you need to be a super-parent 24/7.
