MODULE 3:

INTRODUCTION TO ADLERIAN PLAY THERAPY

In this fun, interactive workshop, learn the basics Adlerian play therapy, a method of integrating the concepts and techniques of Individual Psychology with the play therapy skills and strategies.

In Adlerian play therapy, therapists use the concepts of Alfred Adler’s Individual Psychology to conceptualize children and their parents and teachers, while using toys, art, play material, and metacommunication to connect and communicate with them. The process of co-creating a relationship with the child through play allows therapists to communicate (mostly through metaphor, but sometimes through direct verbal interaction) in a way that facilitates exploration of the child’s patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving, helps the child gain insight into those patterns, and invites the child to make changes in any patterns that are self-defeating or destructive. Engaging the child’s parents and teachers, exploring their own lifestyles and their interaction with the child, helping them to understand the child’s patterns, and teaching them skills for improving the relationship is an integral part of the custom-designed parent and teacher consultation component of Adlerian play therapy.
