A COLLECTION OF PLAY THERAPY ACTIVITIES
THAT HELP TREAT THEM
SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 2020
Introductory level play therapists will gain knowledge on common childhood mental health disorders and experientially explore ways to treat these disorders in play therapy during this half day workshop. The presentation starts with the attendees joining together with the presenter to make an extensive list of symptoms for the common diagnoses of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Autism spectrum disorders (ASD), and adjustment issues. Discussion will follow to examine the overlapping themes (such as lack of self-regulation, anger management issues, inattention, social skill problems, and coping skills).
