- Family activities- for those who enjoy being active and playing together
- Homework- for those who like to practice what they are learning
- A parenting journal- for those who appreciate having time to think and reflect
Each week involves a little bit of everything!
Comprehensive: PlayWorks doesn’t stop at helping you manage child behavior problems. You will also learn how to improve your child’s self esteem, decision-making skills, self-control, ability to identify and express feelings, and sense of connection to you and other people. As a parent, you will learn how to feel more confident and in control.
Cost-effective: Consulting with a child therapist is often expensive. In comparison, PlayWorks is less than the cost of a single counseling session.
Fun: Let’s face it. Most parenting programs aren’t fun, and they definitely don’t provide guidance for parents and caregivers on how to play together in meaningful ways. In PlayWorks, you will learn how to get a sneak peak into your child’s heart and mind through play!
Clinically-Supported: The parenting skills taught in PlayWorks are supported by over 50 years of clinical research, including studies published by it's creator, Dr. Amy Wickstrom.
Preventative: Don’t wait until you have difficulties with your child before getting your hands on good parenting information. Be proactive and prevent problems from happening in the first place.
Healing: Sometimes children struggle and simply need a little extra help. PlayWorks shares the secrets of play therapy with today’s parents so they can help their own children at home.

"Our video-conference consultation with Amy was so helpful. I felt much more connected to the process, and I continue to think about stuff we talked about and tell people about what I've learned. It paired well with listening to the audio sessions already and aligning me with the theory and some of the tools." Kaitlyn McCarty, CA
