Description: Children are rapidly becoming a population with myriad of mental health needs related to issues such as trauma, anxiety, and grief. Serving this very unique population requires culturally and developmentally appropriate interventions. Play therapy has proven to be an effective and efficient means for providing counseling to children by entering their worlds through the familiar experience of toys, creativity, and play. The presenter will discuss a variety of materials, skills, and strategies that can be incorporated into a counselor’s repertoire to serve children.
