Working with Parents in the Playroom

Parents are the most important allies of the play therapist. But forming this alliance requires time, understanding, and lots of communication. It also requires congruence, adaptability, and an appreciation of the parents’ authentic selves. Parents and play therapists are on the same team with one common goal: promote healing for a struggling child.  This one hour pre-recorded webinar from the Lessons from the Playroom Webinar Series explores this play therapy pact.

Working with Parents in the Playroom Objectives: 

  • Explore what parents might be feeling when they bring their child to play therapy
  • Explore how to offer “win-win” advice that is congruent with the parent’s authentic self and in the best interest of the child during a play therapy process
  • Explore when and when not to have a parent in the playroom
