About This Workshop
This course will examine the historical development of, and the current various applications of, play therapy; where the term, “play therapy” is used in the broad sense to mean any of the various therapies which mostly utilize something other than talk. These methods include, but are not limited to: play, art, music, clay, sand play, no-talk therapy, theatre, puppets, dress-up and playing outside. The course will examine why play therapy is a good choice for both children and trauma survivors, and how the clinician can include some of these elements in their own practice. This course provides a hands-on experience.
