From a stroll through the Lollipop Woods of Candyland to a fight over the Thimble in Monopoly, games are part of childhood. In the playroom, certain games are more commonly used than others. How do we use chess as a pawn in our therapeutic healing? How can we call on checkers to check on the states of regulation? What does a game tell us about a child’s emotional world? This one-hour pre-recorded webinar from the Lessons from the Playroom Webinar Series explores these questions and more!
