Many children are brought to play therapy because they have difficulty managing their emotions and/or behaviors. Helping children and families understand and develop self-regulation is one of the most common treatment objectives for play therapists. This workshop will look at the concept of self-regulation from the perspective of several theories of play therapy and provide hands-on experience with interventions designed to help children and families with these types of challenges.
