Level One Theraplay Child and Family Therapy & Marschak Interaction Method

Date: 8 Apr 2019 - 12 Apr 2019


Theraplay is a therapist-guided dyadic psychotherapy that focuses on parent-child relationships and has been accepted by SAMHSA in the United States as an evidence-based practice.

The Marschak Interaction Method (MIM) assessment is a structured technique for observing and assessing the relationship between two individuals, such as the biological parent and child, foster or adoptive parent and child, or supportive caregiver and child.
