“One size fits all” does NOT apply when selecting the best Play Therapy approach!  Dr. Dugan will show you how to continuously assess your treatment plans and make decisions that are ideally suited for each of your clients.

Full Description:
There are many approaches used in play therapy including Non-Directive, Directive, Filial, Group Play Therapy, Family Play Therapy, Theraplay®, and Child-Parent Relationship Therapy.  These approaches are all utilized in similar, though different manners and are used at separate times depending upon the identified patient and family system’s need.  Historically, beginning play therapists are taught from a nondirective framework.
