Using Games in Play Therapy

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 state 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!

  • Gain a better understanding of what a child is telling us through games in play therapy
