Abstract Filial therapy is an innovative psychotherapeutic approach to helping children ages 3-10 by teaching parents pertinent play therapy techniques. Recent research on filial therapy has shown that this approach leads to increased parental awareness of children's needs, a reduction in parental stress, and better child-parent relationships. This article describes the history, techniques, and positive outcomes of filial therapy.
