Lions, Tigers, and Fears, Oh My! Play Therapy Interventions to Address Anxiety

The various presentations of anxiety in children are common reasons for referral to play therapy. In fact, they are often cited as the most common reason for referral. Perhaps because anxiety is such a popular reason for referral to services, there are myriad play therapy interventions designed to treat anxiety. 

In this workshop, we are going to look at common anxiety triggers as well as the benefits of feeling anxiety (All feelings have something to say!). We will review the literature related to anxiety and discuss how to target play therapy assessments and interventions for a particular client. 

We are going to discuss the importance of age-appropriate (think relationship) emotional regulation skills through a brain-development lens.

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss the conceptualization of anxiety through at least two play therapy theoretical lenses
  2. List the steps in three play therapy interventions that target anxiety
  3. Describe play therapy tools that help clients assess and communicate their anxiety
