GAME ON!: USING & CREATING GAMES IN PLAY THERAPY
Participants will learn different ways to use games in play therapy and gain understanding about what clients can gain through game play. A majority of the workshop will be spent learning about different games through demonstration and active participation. We will also discuss what populations and diagnoses the games work best with. Additionally, participants will create their own simple board game which will be able to be used in play therapy.
