In the Supervision and Instruction of Play Therapy course, students learn how to make the transition from trainee to instructor. A leading expert guides participants, by means of a modified Socratic method, through exercises and compassionate communication techniques designed to train students how to help others develop the capacity to think as a play therapist. Individuals walk away with the knowledge of how to help supervisees and students develop treatment goals, devise interventions to achieve these goals, and incorporate ongoing assessment techniques into these elements.
