Parents as Healers: Dynamic Ways to Integrate Caregivers in Play Therapy

ID: 5215

Therapists are increasingly interested in the value of including the caregiver in impactful ways in treatment sessions. This workshop will teach an overall approach, “Parents as Healers” where parents/caregivers are dynamically involved in the play therapy process from the beginning. Participants will discover how to make parents a dynamic part of play therapy sessions with children and adolescents through learning to incorporate them in creative collaboration, directive play, mindfulness, CBT, playful psychoeducation and more. They will also learn about evidence-based parent-led therapies through experiential activities and fun! Challenges highlighted will include oppositional behaviors, trauma, anxiety, ADHD, and ED among others. Play therapy credit toward RPT (Registered Play Therapist) Certification can be awarded to mental health professionals for this course.
