  • Play Therapy or Family Therapy…Which Do I Choose?


    Previously Recorded (Non-contact)-1 CE.
    Presenter: Allan M. Gonsher, LCSW, RPT-S.
    When clinicians decide to see a family and/or work with a child, an immediate decision needs to be made: Do we see the child alone or do we visit with the family? Play Therapists, depending on their training and theoretical bias, will proceed from that vantage point. This webinar will address these initial choices that Play therapists make, explore options in Play Therapy, and provide specific Play Therapy individual/family techniques to help children and their families.

    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.
