Play Therapists’ Attitudes Toward Using Technology in the Playroom



Credits: None available.

Standard: $10.00

Description

The use of technology such as Internet, cell phones, televisions, and video games is a staple part of many children and adults’ lives (Harwood et al., 2011; Hull, 2015; National Association for the Education of Young Children & the Fred Rogers Center, 2012). Professionals disagree about the appropriateness of technology in play therapy settings (e.g., Hull, 2015; Landreth, 2012; Ray, 2012). We surveyed 40 registered play therapists or registered play therapist supervisors to specifically address play therapists’ attitudes and experiences using technology in play therapy. Support for using technology in playrooms was mixed; we defined and provided examples of the 5 themes that emerged from the interviews.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the five themes current RPT/S report as significant to their perceptions of the use of technology in the playroom. 
  • Compare RPT/S’ perceptions of advantages and disadvantages of using technology in the playroom.
  • Compare RPT/S' perceptions of how technology can enhance or detract from building the therapeutic relationship.
