Screenplay: Play Therapy Moves On-line
Workshop outlines the requirements for successful and ethical on-line play therapy. Topics include discussion of benefits and challenges, parent involvement and considerations for culturally sensitive care. Workshop reviews a large intervention toolbox that includes no or low cost, hands on as well as online activities to engage clients and facilitate a wide range of emotional and creative expression.
Workshop examines play as a universal “culturally mediated activity that may take different forms in different groups.” (Gil, 2006). For the play therapist that includes ensuring toys, games, activities, and interventions are appropriate to diverse populations as well as considering the impacts of culture and social experience on therapist’s understanding of the client and client’s thoughts, feelings and behavior. Workshop also includes discussion of cultural humility that includes taking personal responsibility in gaining sensitivity/awareness of ourselves and how our personal and clinical attitudes and behaviors impact our clients and their healing.
After the session, participants will be able to:
- Describe five benefits and challenges to providing play therapy on-line.
- Identify three challenging client behaviors and interventions/ways to manage them.
- Identify three play therapy interventions that can be done in video sessions which do not require a computer or smartphone.
- Identify three on-line play therapy interventions to help children express feelings and learn coping strategies.
