All of the above.The boy in the video felt rejection when his mother beat him in the card game. True FalseWhen the boy in the video put on the ghost costume, he was conveying to his mother that she does not see him for who he is and he does not receive the value he seeks from her. True FalseWhen presenting an overview of the EPT model to parents and the dominate parent disagrees with the concepts, the best way to handle the situation is to: Plead with the other parent to try this model because their child needs it so desperately.

Paradox the parents by saying that no other approach will solve their child’s issues.In EPT, if the therapist asks the parent if the child is displaying lying, stealing and cheating behavior, the next question should be: What type of items does the child like to steal? Give an example of how the child uses lying to get what he wants? How does the child relate to the family pet and the pet to him?
