(Part 1 of 6) Foundations, Principles, and The “Four Pillars” of Child-Centered Play Therapy

Jun 5, 2022

This is the first of a six part series from a FAPT conference workshop. These next six podcasts are a pre-cursor to the content in future episodes. In this first part, I give an introduction, tell my story about how I got into play therapy, introduce the Child-Centered Play Therapy Model, and then I give a short history of child-centered play therapy.
