PLAY FOR THE FAMILY: USING PLAY THERAPY WITH FAMILIES

FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 2020, 9am-4pm

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

This presentation discusses the importance of introducing play therapy to a family as a method of treatment for their child and family. It covers several ways to use play therapy to assess families. Next, the presentation overviews Filial and Theraplay play therapy models.  The presentation also covers what to do in the periodic meetings with parents throughout the process of individual play therapy –  targeting problem behaviors and teaching parenting skills.
