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

ID: 5215

There is increasing evidence that involving parents in play therapy is more effective than treating the child alone. This workshop will teach an overall approach, "Parents as Healers," where parents/caregivers are dynamically involved in the play therapy process from the beginning. The workshop will provide an overview of some of the most effective parent-led play therapy approaches to address a wide range of mental health issues and will include resources for further study in each method. Approaches covered include: including directive play therapy strategies, cognitive behavioral play therapy, and directive play using principles of dialectical and behavioral therapy. Participants will learn to enable the caregiver to be the primary "healer" in the session while making their concerns a priority and having them continue the healing with home-based strategies. Play therapy credit cannot be awarded to non-mental health professionals.
