Target Audience

School Counselors, K-12 teachers who are interested in learning more about Play Therapy, and others who work with young children.


School and preschool counselors, teachers, and other who work with young children are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of using play therapy techniques and strategies in public and private schools alike.


Play is universal and is a natural activity of childhood. Between the ages 2-11 most children use play in a symbolic way to deal with their direct and indirect experiences. By using play children may be able to organize their lives and practice some control over their everyday issues.


This workshop will discuss and illustrate ideas and practical skills for overcoming the obstacles that school staff face in setting up a playroom and facilitating the emotional healing for children through play therapy in the school setting.


Participants will learn play therapy based techniques and processes and successful strategies will be presented. 

Topics Covered

  • Describe how to use play therapy in a school setting (either classroom or therapist’s/school counselor’s room or office).

  • Demonstrate play therapy techniques that help in the assessment of a child. 

  • Design the use of the 30-minute interval to give a child both time to explore difficulties through play therapy and close before returning to class.

  • List interventions that can be used by teachers or staff to deal with behavioral issues.

  • Explain how to work within the school system and still allow play therapy to be confidential.
