Understanding Themes in Play Therapy 

Webinar Description

90-minute webinar

The ability to tease out themes in play therapy benefits the relationship with the child, serves as a framework for consultations with caregivers and educational professionals, and improves clinical conceptualization. Identifying and understanding the themes that emerge in the play of play therapy is the focus of this webinar. When working with children, thematic considerations will be envisioned through the lens of the culture of childhood to gain a greater understanding of the play of play therapy. In this course, participants will have multiple authentic learning experiences.
