    Today's training, led by Dr. Hicks, explored Parent Coaching via the Child-Parent Relationship Filial (CPRT) model versus couples counseling. The atmosphere was warm, and the informative style facilitated dialogue. Emphasis was on nurturing parent-child bonds, crucial in managing client expectations.
