Description

The Center for Play Therapy Research and Training at the University of Central Florida announces its First Annual Play Therapy Conference -

Partners in Play: Adlerian Play Therapy

In this fun, interactive, and experiential workshop, Dr. Terry Kottman, the "inventor" of Adlerian play therapy, will introduce you to Adlerian play therapy, a method of integrating the concepts and techniques of Individual Psychology with the practice of play therapy. You will learn techniques for establishing relationships with clients, exploring clients' life-styles, helping clients gain insight into their lifestyles, and reorienting and reeducating clients. Dr. Kottman will introduce you to several of the unique ways that Adlerians conceptualize children and the significant adults in their lives: goals of misbehavior, the Crucial Cs, and personality priorities. We will explore play therapy strategies, art techniques, metaphors, and storytelling strategies for working with a wide range of clients. Dress comfortably, and be prepared to PLAY!!
