Webinar Description:

The recent racial justice movement has further highlighted the need for play therapists’ to recognize the unique needs of Black children. A core ethical component for a play therapist is to display cultural inclusivity in their work with marginalized communities. But what exactly does that mean? This training will challenge the play therapist to evaluate the way they treat and view the behaviors of Black children in and out of the playroom. Additionally, attendees will learn how to apply important cultural factors when engaging Black children in individual, family and group play therapy. 


Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify ways bias may appear in the playroom with Black children. 

  2. Discuss cultural factors in play therapy with Black children. 

  3. Discuss cultural considerations when gaining play therapy buy-in with Black youth.

  4. Use play-based interventions to build play therapy rapport with Black youth.

  5. Describe multicultural considerations in music-based interventions in play therapy with Black youth.
