Play Therapy Techniques: When Toys Are More Than Toys


Previously Recorded (Non-Contact) -2 CEs.

Presenter: Dianna Green, MSW, LCSW.

On special occasions toys take on a life of their own. When is a ball more than a ball and how do you play checkers 50 days in a row with enthusiasm? These questions will be explored and ANSWERED! The nature of the play space changes with each child and therefore the demands change with each passing hour. In play therapy, how one meets these demands with the same toys on a daily basis is different than other modalities. In this play therapy webinar we will explore how to meet these special challenges. The clinician will explore ways to develop personal comfort with his own toy selection and to deliver maximum intervention to the child client.

Update: You Will Only Receive CE Credit from the APT-Association for Play Therapy until April 30, 2020
