TU6 - Playing with the Big Kids: Using Play Therapy with Adult Clients

Oct 8, 2013 1:00pm ‐ Oct 8, 2013 4:30pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $59.00


This experiential workshop shows when play therapy is useful as an adjunct to typical adult talk therapy. When adults get stuck, play therapy can get them moving again. Interventions will be demonstrated for individuals, couples and families.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify signs that their adult clients may be "stuck" in therapy
  • Describe a theoretical basis for couples counseling that is familiar with, and dovetails with, an underlying "given" in play therapy
  • Discuss the benefits of play therapy as adults
  • Select play therapy techniques to introduce to their adult clients
  • Describe play therapy techniques for adults with a variety of presenting problems
