Webinar Description

The decision to use Directive or Non-Directive Play Therapy is an ongoing debate. Therapists continually debate which approach to use whether it is with individuals, families, or groups. It is no different in Play therapy. A Clinician's training, experience, and comfort level helps him/her to decide which approach to use. When discussing these modalities in Play Therapy, one needs to understand its relationship to Group Play Therapy.
