When setting up a play room where the Doll House and its dolls are located are a very significant issue. Who chooses the Doll House, what does each movement in the house mean, how is it set up, who talks, what is the symbolism of each piece of furniture, are just some of the topics to be covered in this webinar. Be prepared to be challenged in how you implement Play therapy in relation to the Doll House.

    To appreciate Jung and Freud and their discussions of the “Archetype” are part of this webinar. This background helps in knowing how to function as a play therapist. When trying to understand and define countertransference, we often want to “know what to do”. Once a clinician can define, become aware of, and process it, the ability to function in a playroom becomes much more successful. The Practical application of countertransference and play therapy is a complicated phenomenon.
