In this class, the instructor will use discussion, encouragement, videos, role playing, and actual work with children to help you refine your skills so that you will be able to use play therapy skills and techniques to (a) build relationships with children; (b) explore children's lifestyles; (c) help children gain insight into their lifestyles; and (d) help children make changes in their thoughts, feelings, attitudes and behaviors. You will also learn and practice strategies for developing a conceptualization of the child and consulting with parents and teachers as a part of the Adlerian play therapy process. Built into this class is the opportunity to make videos of your practice with a child in the playroom and receive supervision from the instructor.
