Background and Aim: Open play therapy is the most prominent method of behavior change in children. The past has focused more on the therapistchr('39')s interaction with the child, while some models have approached teaching this method to parents and relying on them as a mediator to repair and improve childrenchr('39')s behaviors. One of these methods is the Parent-Child Relationship Play Therapy Model (CPRT). The purpose of this study was to teach parent-child relationship-based play therapy skills to mothers to reduce behavioral problems in children with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
Materials and Methods: In this study, preschool children 6-7 years old were evaluated in two stages. In the first phase, 95 children were evaluated by the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL), 27 of whom had behavioral problems and 15 of their mothers were prepared to participate in the present study. Seven out of 15 patients in the experimental group and 8 in the control group were randomly assigned. All parents completed the CBCL questionnaire in two stages of pre- and post-test. The control group waited for treatment, and the experimental group participated in 10 sessions of 2-hour play therapy training program. Pre-test and post-test data were compared using Mann-Whitney U test.
Results: The results showed that teaching play therapy skills to mothers reduced behavioral problems in children with ADHD compared to the control group.
Conclusion: It can be concluded that parent-child relationship-based play therapy (according to the Landridge model) can provide mothers with behavioral problems in addition to two more specific problems, namely ADHD. Reduce internal and externalized problems to a significant level.
