Play therapy techniques are used to help families heal and grow together. They are also used to help assess family problems. This helps play therapists identify and explain how the presenting problem lies within a family dynamic rather than within an identified patient.
The presenter will compare and contrast growth-promoting and -inhibiting family dynamics through a family development lens. She will also describe how to use play therapy to identify and assess family functioning in relation to family boundaries. She will then help participants learn to identify how to target family play therapy interventions to increase healthy boundaries, interactions, and dynamics.
