Incorporating Caregivers in the Play Therapy Process
INSTRUCTOR: Tania Johnson, R.Psych., RPT

In this workshop attendees will learn to integrate family therapy and parent-lead activities into the play therapy room. Therapists learn how to train and supervise parents as they conduct special child-centered play sessions with their own children. These directives are designed to resolve presenting problems while strengthening family relationships.


  • Assist parents in generalizing the use of the play skills to everyday life situations
  • Learn how to discuss themes of the play sessions with parents to further their understanding of the child and the relationship
  • Help parents understand the value and importance play and their involvement in their children’s treatment
  • Help caregivers set up parent-child play sessions, and give constructive feedback to improve their skills
