Providing Affordable Continuing Education Opportunities for Play Therapy Credentialing
March 6, 2012
Metaphors are in an integral part of play therapy and it's not limited
to working with children. When parents consult with me regarding
problematic behaviors it's vital for me to understand exactly what the
parent is feeling. I will ask them to select an object that symbolizes
their parenting experiences. Their explanation of why they chose that
item helps me empathize with them and create an alliance with them.
