About the Event: 

As a result of this presentation, each participant will learn:

1. A child’s general perspective of the world

2. What play reveals and what children learn through therapeutic play

3. What materials are needed for child-centered play therapy

4. How to use therapeutic facilitative responses in a child-centered play therapy session

5. How to assess and identify stages of therapeutic play

Many counselors and/or therapists find themselves feeling as if they are entering unknown territory when practicing talk therapy with children. There is a great explanation for this; they are! Developmentally, children do not have the tools to explain or discuss their feelings in ways that an adult can. Their ability for abstract thinking may not yet be developed; therefore, it is important to use the child’s language, just as one would with any other client. This will contribute to creating a comfortable therapeutic relationship. The language of children is play. What they cannot express in words can be easily expressed through various types of play. It is my desire to share my training and knowledge in this area in order to expand the availability of this service to children everywhere.
