Play Therapy and Divorce: How to Stay Out of the Courtroom

Presented by: Kelly Peyton, LPC-S, Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor™

Play therapists are trained to keep the relationship with both parents and the children they work with, but when they get a subpoena to be involved in a custody case the relationship becomes quite challenged.  Participants will learn how to handle divorce cases from intake session and beyond to keep themselves out of court.  Participants will learn how to integrate play therapy to decrease triangulation, assess the co-parenting relationship, and treat children dealing with divorce.  

Learning Objectives 
Participants will be able to:

  1. create a divorce treatment plan from a play therapy perspective.
  2. use play therapy activities to help assess the co-parenting relationship, treat children with divorce, and decrease triangulation. 
  3. apply ethics involved in handling a subpoena and writing play therapy notes. 
  4. identify triangulation and how to use this as a goal to help heal the child with play therapy.
