Course Description:
APT Primary Focus Area:
Skills and Methods: 3 CE
Total Play Therapy CE Hours: 3 CE

In this engaging and interactive training, play therapists will gain a greater knowledge of how to choose appropriate games and engage clients in ways that work towards achieving their therapeutic goals.

Participants will learn how games can be used to assess behavior, how to determine whether games are appropriate for the individual child’s treatment, and learn how to make a game more than just a game—but a therapeutic experience.

Additionally, participants will learn a large array of therapeutic benefits of games and a variety of new games to incorporate in their practice.

The training will demonstrate how to use specific games for children with different common diagnoses and how to have family sessions using game play therapeutically. Participants will have the opportunity to learn, practice, and apply their new knowledge and skills with different games in the training.
