Event description

Description

This training consists of a review of the seminal, influential and formative, counseling and personality theories which are applied to play therapy. Theories covered will be: Psychoanalytic; Adlerian; Jungian; Gestalt; Child-Centered (Person Centered); and, Cognitive Behavioral. We will review each by looking at the theory’s view of the person, how dysfunction develops, how change occurs, and the role of the play therapist. Each theory will be analyzed for the prominent therapeutic powers of play. Videos and case information will be used to highlight the theories.

Mental health professional’s taking this training must have already had either Play Therapy 101: The Basics or other basic play therapy training (history, toys & materials, tracking & facilitative responses, and basic play therapist skills).

This training covers a portion of the Association for Play Therapy’s (APT) required criteria for becoming a Registered Play Therapist (RPT).

Participants will be able to:

1. List the seminal play therapy theories

2. Place the play therapy theories along the nondirective-directive continuum

3. Identify the key components of each theory: view of person, dysfunction, goals, role of play therapist

4. Discuss how the play therapist’s skills vary by theory

6. Identify one’s own values alignment with theories reviewed
