Understanding and accepting that the first session could be individual play therapy with a child, or could be a family/couple session, or could ultimately be divorce work, or could be parenting, helps clinicians begin the therapeutic process. All of these paradigms are therapeutic questions we need to ask before a client walks into the office. This webinar will challenge our theoretical foundation and help us better articulate why, when, and how we employ what we employ to begin the work with clients. With this backdrop, the first session in play therapy begins a more manageable task.
