Ohio Association for Play Therapy 

Ohio Association for Play Therapy 2020 Spring Conference 

Ohio is celebrating 20 years as an APT Branch!

 We welcome Pam Dyson to play with us:

  • Using Play Therapy to Treat Attachment Disorders

Children with traumatic early life experiences are at risk for attachment disorders. This training will help play therapists develop a fundamental understanding of how attachment impacts brain development. We will explore how play therapy interventions can assist in helping form secure attachments between children and caregivers. Video clips of attachment-based play therapy sessions will be shown.

  • Play Therapy for the Often Misunderstood Preschool Population

The focus of this training will be on play therapy with children 3-5 years of age. We will look at child development, developmental delays and common clinical disorders of preschoolers. Play therapy interventions appropriate for preschoolers will be shared. Video clips of play therapy sessions with preschoolers will be shown and attendees will have an opportunity to participate in experiential activities.

Discovery Toys will have an exhibit at the conference!

***Self Esteem Shop is offering materials for pre-order to be picked up at the conference check-in - you will receive a promotion code for 10% off and free shipping (if picked up at the conference).  We will also be hosting a Self Esteem Shop pop up shop.
