Play Therapy with Sexually Traumatized Children 

Play Therapy for Sexually Traumatized Children 


Using the best elements of both directive and non-directive play therapy approaches with traumatized children allows for healing and repair of losses associated with sexual trauma like innocence, trust, and appropriate boundaries.  In this workshop, participants will learn about sexual development in children, the psychological markers of sexual trauma, and the special issues these children present in play therapy.  Included will be ways to consult with non-offending parents, deal with powerful impact of countertransference, and setting limits.


  • Describe sexualized play in play therapy
  • List possible physical and behavioral indicators of sexual trauma to include boundary issues
  • Identify rational for using child-centered play therapy approach
  • Describe the range of emotional conflict a child might experience with disclosure
  • Demonstrate specific play therapy techniques for children who have been sexually traumatized
  • Identify common countertransference issues that often arise and ways to work through them
