Key topics include competency, fidelity, and the history and core tenets of prescriptive play therapy. And we are going to play!
Day 2: Expanding your Play Therapy Horizon – Delve into the application of Prescriptive Play Therapy with an emphasis on overcoming roadblocks and building confidence. How do you engage in the decision making process and choose what will work best for each client? Dive into the process by navigating and reflecting on a case example and implementation of play approaches through a structured decision making questionnaire. Consider external approaches beyond traditional play therapy theories, and engage in interactive discussion to strengthen competence in prescriptive methods. And we will play some more!
Day 3: Charting the Course Forward – Focus on personal and professional growth within the play therapy field. Participate in experiential case example exercises and create a future-oriented “Miro Board” to visualize your development journey. Conclude with a comprehensive discussion on integrating learned theories and crafting a unique, prescriptive approach to play therapy. Oh yes, and we will be playing!
Each day is structured to include theoretical learning, practical application, reflective self-work, and a leveling up case example question and answer time. Each day is designed to ensure you leave with a profound understanding of Prescriptive Play Therapy and a clear direction for your practice.
