Parent-Child Attachment Play (PCAP)
Empowering parents and carers as the change agents in their own families
PCAP is for all parents who would like to overcome or prevent difficulties with their children; either individually or alongside other parents.
Parent Child Attachment Play training will…
- Support with change right into the heart of the family home
- Empower caregivers with 3 simple attachment skills and a home-made mini play kit
- Teach a simple and highly effective method to strengthen the parent-child attachment relationship
Parent-Child Attachment Play (PCAP) is a strengths-based approach and gives parents opportunities and new skills to play with their child whilst building a strong and positive relationship. When the child is securely attached to their parent or primary caregiver, they will have adequate security and trust to form relationships with others, have confidence to explore the wider world and have the ability to regulate their emotions. PCAP is a method combining some aspects of Filial Play Therapy process with latest Attachment research mechanisms. It helps parents to promote attachment security in their children from 3 years old upwards.
What to expect?
A Parent-Child Attachment Play (PCAP) practitioner will meet with the parent only to work on the three key skills and how to set up a play time at home. When the parent feels confident and is familiar enough with the skills, the parent has to set up play sessions with their child at home. The PCAP practitioner will continue to support the parent in the delivery of play sessions with their child. The practitioner only works with the parent/carer, they will not work directly with the child.
The parent learns new skills to connect with their child, improve their child’s emotional state and behavior and meet the needs of their child.
The parent acquires skills such as Child-oriented Play, Containment and Reflective Functioning. The repetition of positive experiences helps the child-parent relationship become stronger, closer and happier, which in turn imprints “happy connections” in the brain. It can furthermore support the child for developing future relationships such as making friends.
