(2) Assessing Progress in Child-Centered Play Therapy – June 21, 2024

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 four-part CCD training series offered in May-August 2024 is requested by Queensland Institute for Play Therapy (QIPT) in Australia. All current and alumni members of QIPT will register at a discounted rate. Non-QIPT affiliates are able to register for individual trainings or register for all four and receive a bundle discount.

See Additional Details below for more information about the bundle discount.


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:
