Beyond Cultural Competency: Helping Play Therapists Practice Cultural Humility

Credits: None available.

The U.S. is very diverse, with people of different races, cultures, and ethnicities. Often times, we see this diversity in our playrooms. Research shows that, unfortunately, culturally minoritized populations suffer disproportionally from mental health disparities. One very much needed intervention is culturally competent mental health care, including in the playroom. These realities and our Codes of Ethics require that clinicians be prepared to effectively meet these needs. However, clearly understanding how to apply a multicultural perspective in assessment and clinical practice, in the playroom, can be difficult to conceptualize. This interactive workshop presents effective ways to implement ethical and culturally informed case conceptualization and intervention in the playroom. We will explore and discuss ways in which multicultural aspects can be infused in play therapy. Participants will engage in the meaningful and therapeutic conversation surrounding race, culture, ethnicity, the intersection of identities and the dynamics of privilege that influence counseling relationships.

Play Therapy Primary Areas:

  • Cultural & Social Diversity Topics

Learning Objectives:
  • Define what racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity is and how it relates to play therapy
  • State how awareness and sensitivity to racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity issues go well beyond the assumed categories in play therapy
  • Recommend 3 behavioral tools for fostering a more inclusive environment in play therapy
