10:00 AM - 12:-00 Pm Eastern Time

7:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time



This workshop is intended to introduce supervision models that can be utilized in play therapy supervision groups, with a focus on the Integrated Developmental Model of supervision. The levels of training and understanding shown by the play therapy supervisee will be explored from the viewpoint of this model. Techniques and experiences intended to support supervisees in various levels to continue their play therapy learning and application will be practiced. This workshop will also cover some policies and procedural safeguards that the play therapy supervisor should have in place including logistical considerations and data collection forms. Attendees will explore the various roles a play therapy supervisor holds during supervision groups and ways to bring fun and playfulness into group formation, case review, skill building, understanding of client presence, and supervisee’s sense of self. This workshop will be run from a prescriptive orientation, encouraging attendees to utilize and match their own theoretical orientation in conjunction with supervisees’ orientations and the needs of the group. Attendees will develop a stronger understanding of the power of group play therapy supervision as well as ways to provide this service.
