Webinar Description

Games provide opportunities in both directive play therapy approaches as well as a fun and interactive outlet for more non-directive interventions within the play therapy room. While the average play therapist may be no stranger to traditional board games, or games created for therapists by therapists, additional opportunities exist for the use of games in play therapy. This training will introduce less traditional board games which can be used to promote play therapy goals, discussing the benefit of using these types of games with clients who appear resistant as well as older children and adolescents. As recent trends illustrate the growing importance of technology within the language of play today, this training will also explore how to therapeutically, and ethically, use video games as play therapy interventions.
