Child Centered Play Therapy
Presented by Sara Haas, PhD, LPC, Registered Play Therapist™
Relationships between therapists and children are crucial for healing to occur in therapy. Child-Centered Play Therapists provide the core conditions of person-centered theory; congruence, empathic understanding, and UPR to create a therapeutic relationship with children (Landreth, 2012). Additionally, understanding the history and theory behind Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) is necessary to the implementation. This workshop will focus on the theoretical underpinnings, key principles, and skills of CCPT.
Participants will be able to:
- Discuss CCPT theory in order to promote a deeper understanding of the power of play therapy
- Explain core principles of CCPT theory
- Demonstrate CCPT skills that can be utilized in the play therapy room
