CASE CONSULTING

Who Should Attend This Course?

Participants should have professional training in counseling/ psychotherapy and currently practicing in the field as a play therapist.

Previous attendance at a training by Dr. Norton is recommended to provide a working knowledge of the style and concepts of play therapy utilized. However, all therapists who are interested in improving their skills as play therapist are welcome.

Agenda

The format will consist of case presentations by the participants. Presentations may consist of video tapes, art work, sand trays, case notes, and dynamics of the play process.

Each participant will have the opportunity to present four hours of case material for direct consultation, in addition to contributions from other members of the group.

The format will be open discussion of issues, content, process and dynamics of the cases presented. Confidentiality will be maintained on all case material presented.

  • Provide consultative feedback for play therapy cases.
  • Explain the meaning of children’s play and how it relates to the various stages of play therapy.
