This course provides an overview of the essential elements and principles of play therapy, including its history, theoretical foundations, techniques and skills. The course is designed using a “level of directness” continuum, beginning with the study of nondirective play and moving across the continuum to include the use of direct skill-building play interventions with children. An experiential component will focus on basic play therapy skill development within the context of ethical and diversity-sensitive practice.
