Play therapy is an evidence-based approach to help children with social or emotional deficits learn to communicate better, express underlying feelings that they may be struggling with, positively change their behaviour,, develop problem solving skills, and relate to others in more productive ways. Sessions are offered live, but are also recorded for those who cannot make the live training and available for 60 days. This training is accredited by the Association for Play Therapy for 3.25 contact training hours.
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
