As a Play Therapist Supervisor supporting supervisees (or if you’re not yet a supervisor or on your way to becoming a supervisor), you know that working with children and their families involves a complexity that is like no other, especially when thinking about legal and ethical considerations. 

Below are some common questions that arise for both new and seasoned Play Therapy Supervisors when navigating the ethical issues that arise during the process play therapy:

  • What should my paperwork and documentation look like?
  • What exactly is my role and how do I stay in my role?
  • What are my ethical responsibilities as a supervisor? and
  • How do I increase my awareness on how cultural diversity impacts play therapy, and thus supervision?”
