This seminar will focus on working with children in various settings, including schools, clinics, and home. The therapeutic powers of play help us to create techniques to use with different types of clients. Participants will learn many techniques to use in these settings and practice some of the techniques in the webinar. Metaphorical storytelling will also be reviewed so that participants can use this technique in helping children with psychological difficulties. There will also be an overview of how to use play therapy techniques in assessment. Videotapes will be used to enhance the didactic presentation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the therapeutic powers of play and how they help a child in play therapy.
  • Use certain techniques to enhance the verbalization of clients.
  • Identify affective, communication, and self-control techniques for particular clients.
  • Use play therapy techniques that are useful in school settings with individuals or groups
