Child-Centered Group Play Therapy 

The focus of this 1.5-hour online training is using Child-Centered Group Play Therapy (CCGPT) with young children experiencing social, emotional, behavioral, and/or relational difficulties.

Child-Centered Group Play Therapy (CCGPT) is an evidence-based intervention that allows children to experience social interactions with 2-4 group members to learn, practice, and enhance new social and coping skills. This training provides participants with information on CCGPT, principles and skills a child-centered play therapist should acquire as well as specific techniques and strategies used in child-centered group play therapy through reviewing session videos.
