♦ Parent & Professional Profiles
♦ Strategies for Engaging Parents & Professionals
♦ Consultation Checklists
HOW PLAY THERAPISTS CAN ENGAGE PARENTS & PROFESSIONALS DVD:
The theories behind Child-Centered Play Therapy are clear to most professionals in the field who have put them to use with the children they work with and encounter in their personal lives. The benefits and results are also easily observed by the trained professional. However, those who know little about these theories and this mode of therapy often struggle understanding how acceptance, empathy, and autonomy could lead to the healing of the children who have experienced different traumas and struggles. Getting this information across to parents and other professionals, like school officials and doctors, is quite the challenge! But it is a very important part of Child-Centered Play Therapy, as studies have shown that CCPT and consultation combined have better outcomes than CCPT alone. This DVD addresses those concerns and assists the watcher in developing new ways to communicate the CCPT theories and language to the important people who work and live with the children we see!
