Event description
Family Play Therapy with Disruptive Behavior Disorders

About this Event

Disruptive Behavior Disorders (ADHD, ODD, CD, ASD, etc.) tend to be the mostsought out concerns for families and schools (Crane, Malloy, & Parker, 2016), yet therapists tend to shy away from these cases (Bird, Canino, Davies, Zhang, Ramirez, & Lahey, 2001). A review of important Family System Principles and specific Play Therapy Techniques informs an approach at treating DBD’s systemically. Over 50 years of research tells us how to help children with these disorders (Granic & Patterson, 2006; ), yet most of the interventions that are still used actually perpetuate the problem (Bearss, Johnson, & Smith, 2015) Kaminski & Claussen (2017) continue to find that the most important aspect of treating DBD’s is having a systemically informed multi-modal treatment approach. Using a theory driven approach, participants will explore how circular causality, triangulation, an paradoxical interdependence reinforce disruptive behaviors. The presenter will use the metaphor of taming buffalo’s to demonstrate how key principles of child-centered play therapy, filial play therapy, and directed play therapy utilize these systemic ideas to create renewed homeostasis for families with a child(ren) who have disruptive behaviors. The presenter will showcase via video-recorded sessions how this is possible.
