This presentation is for beginning play therapists. It will begin by looking at the importance of how the therapist views children and discuss how the therapeutic relationship is central to Child Centered Play Therapy (CCPT). The presentation will overview what materials/toys are needed in a CCPT room and how to set up a play room, as well as places you can obtain the items. From there it will focus on learning the essential CCPT skills of structuring, empathic listening, imaginary play, limit setting, and faith & respect. The workshop will include lecture, discussion, video demonstration, live demonstration, and role-play.
