Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for Play Therapy – A Developmentally Sensitive and Playful Approach to Supporting Children’s Social & Emotional Skills from an ACT Perspective

Course Description 

In addition to the common goals of play therapy, clinicians can also facilitate and embed Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) philosophies, metaphors and interventions through a mindful and developmentally sensitive application.  Similar to the integration of cognitive-behavior theory and play therapy in the past, ACT can also be utilized to further support clients in an integrative approach that also uses experiential interventions, mindful facilitative comments, role-play, bibliotherapy, metaphors and more. ACT is a powerful theory that includes the practice of mindfulness and behavior strategies towards long-term goals of self-management.

Learning Outcomes

  • After the session, participants will be able to describe ways to embed ACT principles into both traditional non-directive, child-centered play therapy and directive play therapy interventionsby utilizing an integrated play therapy approach.
  • After the session, participants will be able to utilize the metaphors of toys in play therapy, to help clients go deeper into their ACT experiential skills.
  • After the session, participants will be able to adapt the ACT Hexaflex of psychological flexibility areas, into age-appropriate goals to be supported in play therapy sessions.
  • After the session, participants will be able to list 2-3 ACT based play therapy interventions.
