Description:

Ever wonder what your play therapy theoretical orientation is? Did you know that play therapy is not actually a theory? Just as we all have various individual personalities, we all have a personality that shows up in the playroom. This workshop is designed to provide workshop participants an introduction to the following historically significant play therapy theories: Adlerian Play Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Play Therapy, Developmental Play Therapy, and Gestalt Play Therapy. Who is ready to match their personality with their play therapy theory?

Objectives:

  1. Participants of this workshop will review and discuss Schaefer and Drewes Therapeutic Powers of Play in relation to seminal theories.
  2. Participants of this workshop will identify Personality Priorities in Adlerian Play Therapy, assess their importance within this theory and demonstrate interventions to assess these in the playroom.
  3. Participants of this workshop will identify Goals of Misbehavior in Adlerian Play Therapy, assess their importance within this theory and demonstrate interventions to assess these in the playroom.
  4. Participants of this workshop will identify the Crucial C’s in Adlerian Play Therapy, assess their importance within this theory and demonstrate interventions to assess these in the playroom.
  5. Participants of this workshop examine and discuss toy selection, arrangement, and categories that identify an Adlerian playroom and assess their own playroom by creating a personalized toy inventory.
  6. Participants of this workshop will examine and discuss Cognitive Behavioral Play Therapy’s (CBPT) tenets, goals, treatment approach and materials utilized. Participants will create and demonstrate hands-on CBPT interventions.
  7. Participants of this workshop will experience the power of touch of Developmental Play Therapy by experientially examining the principals of this play therapy theory.
  8. Participants of this workshop will examine the basic tenets of Gestalt Play Therapy as they experience its therapeutic benefits through hands-on play therapy interventions.
