About this Event

Due to popular demand, we have added another day for this workshop!

Family Play Therapy is a systemic approach to working with families, in which play therapy is utilized to create and promote relational rewards, to increase emotional connection, to side-step ambivalence about participation, to generate energy that can be channeled for positive change, and to encourage family members to change their perception of each other and the potential for relational growth. Clinicians will learn to create play activities for families that will facilitate reflection, laughter and playfulness, and replace negative patterns of interaction which might motivate efforts to repeat and implement healthier relational behaviors.

Following the workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Define family play therapy

2. List two family play therapy techniques;

3. List three ways that play therapists can determine play therapy interventions based on family dynamics
