Children are often excluded from family therapy because many practitioners are at a loss of how to effectively engage them. The use of creative activities in family therapy such as games, art, and storytelling, facilitates the participation of all family members. Play and expressive arts techniques, in particular, offer an advantage over traditional “talk therapy” because children are provided with a more developmentally appropriate means to communicate. Additionally, play and arts activities facilitate family relatedness.

Through this fun and interactive webinar, participants will learn a number of innovative play therapy techniques to engage, assess, and treat families. The advantages of using play therapy techniques with families will be outlined, and tips for overcoming challenges will be discussed. Videos of family play therapy sessions will illustrate techniques.
Learning Objectives:
Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • List three benefits to using play, art, and other expressive techniques in family therapy.
  • Implement at least 2 strategies for engaging resistant family members
  • Utilize at least 6 play therapy techniques in sessions with families.
