Discipline Does not Equal Punishment: Working with Parents in the Play Therapy Process

Presented by Dalena Dillman Taylor, PhD, LMHC, Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor

Working with parents in the play therapy process can be challenging. Many parents want a quick fix and yet, therapy takes time. In this interactive, experiential workshop, the presenter will discuss how to engage parents in effective discipline practices that are grounded in relationship based on their child’s specific needs. The presenter will use videos, discussion, and activities to illustrate helpful, key points to connect with the parents in parent consultations. Participants will gain specific skills, techniques, and talking points to enhance their practice with parents in play therapy.

Learning Objectives: 

Participants will:

  1. apply the Adlerian play therapy concepts of the four Crucial C’s to the conceptualization of both the parent and child
  2. apply the four mistaken beliefs to the conceptualization of both the parent and child
  3. identify three play therapy skills to use with parents in parent consultations
  4. identify parent’s primary personality priority from Adlerian Play Therapy and how to modify responses to encourage further parental engagement
