Workshop Overview:
This workshop is a foundational beginning for those new to play therapy or beginning
to explore the application of play therapy. It’s a also a great refresher for those who
are more seasoned in the field or are looking to expand their theoretical knowledge.
This course will go towards the history and theory requirements of the new RPT
credential. We will begin by exploring the history and development of play therapy.
Then, we will dive into seminal and historical theories such as child-centered play
therapy, filial therapy, Jungian, Gestalt, and more. With each theory, we will identify
the basic tenets, how it applies to the therapeutic powers of play, the basic
application of the theory, and example interventions. We will also explore how they
conceptualize psychopathology, therapy goals, and progress.

Workshop Objectives:
After the workshop, participants will be able to:
-Rehearse the history and development of play therapy
-Identify the 4 therapeutic powers of play and how each theory covered
conceptualizes them
-Identify the basic tenets of the seminal theories of play (Adlerian, child-centered,
cognitive-behavioral,developmental, ecosystemic, filial, gestalt, Jungian, objectrelations, and
Theraplay)
-Identify how each seminal theory conceptualizes psychopathology/client
dysfunction
-Identify how each seminal theory conceptualizes treatment goals and progress
-Verbalize how to apply each seminal theory and identify 1-3 interventions for each
theory
-Know where to get additional information and/or training on each theory
