National Play Therapy Week 2022
Game On! Using and Creating Games in Play Therapy presented by Laura Hutchison, PsyD, RPT-S
Participants will learn different ways to use games in play therapy and gain an understanding about what clients can gain through game play. A majority of the workshop will be spent learning about different games through demonstration and active participation. We will also discuss what populations and diagnoses the games work best with. Additionally, participants will create their own simple board game which will be able to be used in play therapy.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify 20 games to use in play therapy.
- Explain what things are learned through game play in play therapy.
- Create a simple board game for use in the play therapy setting
