Reparenting is a therapy rooted in Transactional Analysis, which was designed to re-orient into healthier thoughts and behaviors, psychological issues that were believed to have first originated in childhood through poor parenting: neglect, trauma, abuse, abandonment etc.

Some of its practitioners felt they had improved or effected cures of various forms of schizophrenia with or without the use of psychotropic medication.

Reparenting involved psychological regression to the age(s) at which the abuses occurred, and then, either reliving and releasing the specific traumas that occurred back then, and receiving normal parenting about thoughts and feelings.

The therapist held the role of clinician as well as "healthy parent" figure. The goal was to relieve the circular suffering that often goes on in the minds of persons harmed when young, to teach coping skills, control of certain negative behaviors. This healthier worldview was thought by some, like Jacqui Schiff, an early proponent of reparenting therapy, to have helped to alter the biochemical and neurological patterns which once produced destructive thoughts] and behaviors.
