Play Therapy: Theory, Practice
Play Therapy Lab
For over fifty years, therapists have been using play to understand and relieve psychological distress in children. Does it work? If so, how and for whom? In this course, we will critically examine the theoretical underpinnings of play therapy, weigh the research evidence supporting its effectiveness in treating a range of diagnoses, and explore issues at the intersection of theory and practice. Our work will be guided by theoretical and empirical texts, as well as videotaped and live play sessions that students will at times observe, conduct, and critique.
