The SF Bay Area Chapter of the California Association for Play Therapy invites you to join us at our next presentation:
“Play Therapy Interventions Using the Traditional Cultural Game, Lotería”
Presented by Cristal Alvarado, AMFT and Karen Pernet, LCSW, RPT-S
A FREE 2.0 CE Workshop; *Limited to 40 Participants
This workshop will address how a traditional cultural game, Loteria, can be used in play therapy with the Mexican-American/Latinx population as well as clients of all cultural backgrounds. This workshop will not only discuss the relevance/significance of the game within the Mexican community but will also demonstrate various interventions to be used during play therapy with individuals and their families. This workshop will cover the helpfulness of including this game in the play therapy office as well as how this game and its interventions can be used with low to no cost items.
Workshop Objectives: After the session, participants will be able to…
- Describe the overall importance of traditional cultural games and the significance of the game Loteria in the Mexican-American community.
- Identify and implement at least two play therapy interventions adapted for the game Lotería that can be used in different phases of treatment.
- Identify the benefits of including Lotería in play therapy sessions with their clients.
- Discuss the advantages and limitations of using Lotería with clients from various backgrounds and with different developmental needs
