Play Therapy in Non-Traditional Settings

From a swing set to a grassy knoll, play therapy can happen outside of the playroom. Play therapy in a Pontiac? A sand tray in a sandlot? The setting doesn’t matter! Why? Because it’s the relationship between clinician and client that truly counts.  This webinar explores boundaries, logistics, and how play therapy looks without toys or walls.
