Play Therapy and the Culture of Childhood
1 Play Therapy Non-Contact Hour (APT Approved Provider 12-331)
In this video interview, Dr. Jodi Mullen discusses her research and experience on the culture of childhood. She believes that in order for play therapists to be effective they have to be competent cross-culturally. Luckily, the language of play is universal. Still play therapists must take into account the world of children is vastly different from that of adults. There exist rules, values, customs, and language that are part of a culture that adults have left long behind. A culture where one is generally powerless, physical size matters, and your daily accomplishments are judged as inconsequential by the dominant culture of adulthood (drawings, homework, physical tasks like cartwheels). What’s important to children is not judged as such by the dominant culture. Children experience a childhood where their thoughts and feelings are often dismissed and minimized - little person equals little problem.
