Children can struggle with emotions or adjusting to changing life circumstances just like adults. However, children are different from adults in how they process information – traditional talk therapy isn’t always appropriate or helpful. The language of children is play. This presentation will help participants to gain better understanding of what Play Therapy is, how it works, and who might benefit from doing play therapy.
Level I : This session presents an overview of play therapy and would best meet the needs of families and/or professionals with little to no knowledge of, or experience, with this topic.
This session is presented by the Community Education Service of the Child and Adolescent Addictions and Mental Health Portfolio and Psychiatry (CAAMHPP) of Alberta Health Services in partnership with Rocky Mountain Psychological Services and the South Health Campus Wellness Centre.
