Journeying Through Grief with AdPT (Part 1)

Dive into the often challenging topic of grief with play therapy clients.


Join us for a half-day seminar to dive deeply into the often challenging topic of grief with play therapy clients. This is an interactive, discussion-based class in which we will explore how to use Adlerian play therapy to conceptualize, plan treatment, and be with our grieving clients. The presenters will facilitate reflection-based discussion, share case examples, provide resources for clinicians and clients, and teach Adlerian play therapy interventions for grieving clients. You will leave with a greater understanding of grief and mourning, the process of conceptualizing grief and mourning from an Adlerian play therapy perspective, and techniques to better support your clients and their families along their grief process. We hope to empower you to feel more ease with the discomfort of grief in play therapy. We will also intentionally make space to discuss and explore multicultural/socio-cultural elements of grief and mourning.
