Play Therapy Across the Lifespan: Treating Children, Teens and Adults
4 APT Non-Contact Credits from Clair Mellenthin, APT Approved Provider 15-442
Play therapy is not just an effective therapeutic approach for young children, it is also a powerful tool for use with teens and adults as well! Across ages and stages, play therapy helps clients to bring awareness of feelings, make sense of thoughts and emotions, increase understanding of self and others, and improve social and emotional functioning. Participants will engage in a fun, experiential play therapy training to explore how you can apply play therapy techniques with any client, regardless of age or presenting symptom.
We will explore The Therapeutic Powers of Play, developmentally appropriate play, and interventions, how to strengthen self-esteem and increase self-confidence. You will leave with a toolbox filled with play therapy techniques utilizing Sandtray, expressive arts, puppets, role-playing, and guided imagery (to name a few) that you can use immediately with clients of all ages.
