Day 2—Playful Meanings: Understanding Patterns and Themes in Play Therapy

This two-day workshop, presented by Lipscomb University’s graduate Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program, will teach developmental characteristics for 3- to 10-year-olds and how development is assessed and used to measure progress. 

Participants will also learn the process for identifying common themes in play therapy that will help them communicate more effectively with children and parents.

The workshop will feature Dee Ray, professor and director of the Center for Play Therapy at the University of North Texas. Ray’s research agenda focuses on the quantitative effectiveness of play therapy, with a specific interest in school settings. She is an active member of APT and focuses her work on demonstrating efficacy and disseminating information on play therapy.
