Projects that have been launched


At the beginning of 2020, we noted of the severe pandemic in Hong Kong, whereby schooling was suspended, and parents and children were trapped home without any outlet.  In view of the situation, we called on nearly 40 experienced play therapists with degrees in social worker or counseling in April, and then recruited 200 parents through a number of kindergartens and primary schools.  Then, we offered 6 sessions of "Child Parent Relationship Therapy" (CPRT) training for these parents through online groups (6-10 parents in each group) voluntarily. We offered all together 29 groups at the time. The goal was to equip these parents with the skills of play therapy, so that they could be their children's "counselors".


From the establishment of the Association at the end of 2020 to January 2022, the Association has completed another 47 classes, and more than 400 parents have participated in the CPRT training. In the past year or so, we have been working hard to improve the effectiveness of our CPRT training. With the funds from our sponsoring Foundations, we have been able to increase the number of lessons to 7, and to provide free CPRT toy-set to parents who have attended most of the lessons.


We are very grateful in the past that the Association, with the support of the following Charity Funds, is able to provide online CPRT courses for parents of kindergarten or primary school children:

  • AM730 Charity Fund

  • Kaleidoscope Charity Fund

  • Chan Cheung Mun Chung Charitable Fund

  • Shih Wing Ching Foundation

Project effectiveness

As follow up to the above projects, we surveyed more than 500 parents by structured questionnaires to understand the effectiveness of our CPRT training.


1. Help for parents

  • More in reflecting children's feelings (empathy)              91.6%

  • More specific encouragement for children                      90.0%

  • Giving children more choices                                          90.8%

  • More firm and effective when setting limits or discipline 91.6%


2. Helps to children

  • Enhanced in confidence                                                  90.0%

  • Reduction in tantrums                                                      92.3%

  • Calmed down faster                                                         90.0%

  • Decrease in behavioral problems                                    93.9%

  • Stronger cooperation with parents                                   93.9%


Among the respondents, 97.7% of the parents gave the training an overall rating of 8 or above.  It indicated that the effectiveness of CPRT training was remarkable. The participating parents showed improvement in their parent-child relationship through learning and practice of CPRT, and likewise, their children also benefitted.
