A child-centered play therapy workshop for professional elementary school counselors: An exploratory study

The purpose of this qualitative study was to describe the experiences of professional school counselors participating in a play therapy workshop as an introduction to child-centered play therapy (CCPT). Constructivism led this qualitative study to describe six professional school-counselor participants’ perceptions of CCPT and their experiences in attending the play therapy workshop. This article presents a development of the workshop for professional school counselors, findings of this qualitative study, and discussion about implications for practice and research. © 2018 Association for Play Therapy.
