(2) Assessing Progress in Child-Centered Play Therapy — December 15, 2023

Many child-centered play therapists have a sense of feeling like change is occurring in play therapy but struggle to articulate or track progress in meaningful ways, especially when there is pressure “to do more” to “fix” the problem. 

This training will: 

  • Provide you with specific ways to observe and understand shifts in play therapy that indicate progress towards a stronger sense of self, and ultimately, self-actualization, and
  • Provide you a framework for understanding shifts in play as progress points, allowing you to better trust the process of CCPT even when pressure “to do more” is present.

This training provides an overview of existing methods for assessing progress in play therapy including themes, stages, and caregiver feedback. Most importantly, the training will introduce the importance of tracking progress towards incremental changes in play and provide a framework for doing so. Learning how to assess progress in play therapy can help clinicians build the language for communicating how change occurs in CCPT and ultimately be able to help caregivers understand this process of change.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify at least 3 common themes in play therapy 
  • Identify the stages of play therapy
  • Demonstrate an understanding of assessing progress towards internal growth and integration in play therapy by being able to name at least one example
  • Demonstrate an ability to translate progress examples from play therapy to parents in a way that speaks to growth while maintaining confidentiality

Additional Details:

  1. This training is [Section 2] Assessing Progress of the Child-Centered Documentation Framework.
  2. We highly recommend taking  [Section 1] Treatment Planning and Case Conceptualization and [Section 3] Progress Notes in conjunction with this training.
  3. Each section is designed to be stand-alone. If you are unable to take all three, you will still benefit from taking only [Section 1] Treatment Planning and Case Conceptualization OR [Section 2] Assessing Progress in CCPT.
  4. In order to take [Section 3] Progress Notes in CCPT, you must have completed either [Section 1] Treatment Planning and Case Conceptualization OR [Section 2] Assessing Progress in CCPT.
  5. This training assumes a basic understanding of CCPT theory and practice. It will not explain how to do CCPT, but rather how to conceptualize CCPT cases for treatment planning purposes.
  6. Participants may be invited to engage with peers in breakout rooms to apply the principles to enhance learning.
