Conceptualizing and Treatment Planning in Adlerian Play Therapy In-Person

In this advanced workshop, you will practice using Adlerian conceptualization of clients as a springboard for custom‑designing treatment plans and developing intervention strategies in Adlerian play therapy.

Description

In this class, we will work on deepening your understanding of conceptualization and treatment planning in Adlerian play therapy. Using “example clients,” you will deepen your knowledge of how to assess the client’s developmental level, presenting problem, temperament, preferred modalities of expression, goals of misbehavior, Crucial Cs, life tasks, personality priorities, lifestyle convictions, mistaken beliefs and private logic. We will then work on using your understanding of each of these lifestyle elements to design play therapy interventions to help specific clients gain insight and make behavioral, cognitive, attitude, and affective changes.
