How does play therapy look through the eyes of parents? Is it effective? Is it confusing? Is it helpful? Is it worth the time and money? It’s up to therapists to act as translators, translating play in a way that promotes its purpose. In this course, learn how to keep parents engaged, how to encourage realistic expectations, how to uncover subtle changes, and how to teach moms and dads to embrace play as a powerful force in the life of their child.
This class is open to mental health professionals only.
