Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) is a systematic treatment approach to child-generated play. This course is a combination of didactic presentations and experiential activities that detail the four major elements of CCPT technique: structuring, reflective listening, fantasy play, and limit setting. Also included are the history and theory of CCPT, selection of toys, types of play, assessment for termination, combining CCPT with other models of child therapy, and the benefits and limitations of the CCPT model.
