This model was developed to help play therapists "'answer the Who, What, When, Why and How of the Play Therapy process"'.
Lori Yasnik and Ken Gardner, 2004
Expand your knowledge and skill in play therapy approaches with children. This one day experiential workshop introduces you to four approaches and applications of play therapy interventions with children. Play therapy provides children with a developmentally appropriate means of expressing, exploring and resolving challenges through play. Much like counselling methods for adults, play therapy can take many forms. Inspired by The Play Therapy Dimensions Model, developed by Lorri Yasenik and Ken Gardner, we will explore a variety of play therapy approaches to address a range of presenting issues and problems.
This Model is an integrative framework that includes four different play therapy approaches that considers the dimensions of consciousness and directiveness in play therapy.
This workshop will provide valuable tools and processes for mental health clinicians who work with children to enhance their ways of providing tailored play therapy interventions. Case presentations will be used to illustrate treatment interventions and skills based activities will focus on intervention planning and delivery. This workshop provides practical, useful and interactive opportunities to expand your understanding of and ways of working with children.
Psychologists, social workers, counsellors, case workers, child and family workers, mental health and pastoral workers, other allied health professionals and students who are currently counselling children (or intend to). Provisional psychologists can attend at student rates.
