History and Theory of Play Therapy 

Presented by Juliet Fortino, MC, LPC, Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor

Our play therapy predecessors guided the play therapy field and educated future play therapists in skill, theory, and technique. The history of play therapy and its development over the years is an integral part of the novice play therapists’ education. Additionally, the theoretical underpinnings of play therapy work are critical to practitioners developing a sound foundation leading to successful play therapy engagement with clients. This workshop will explore the history of play therapy and the theories we use to cultivate a well-rounded play therapy practice.

Learning Objectives: 

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the history and progression of play therapy
  2. Explain the basic fundamentals of play therapy
  3. Identify at least 5 seminal play therapy theoretical approaches and apply these theories to case examples
