Cognitive-behavioral Play Therapy incorporates cognitive and behavioral interventions within a play therapy paradigm. It provides a theoretical framework based on cognitive-behavioral principles and integrates these in a developmentally sensitive way. Specific problem-solving approaches are used, which help the child develop more adaptive thoughts and behaviors. This workshop will describe the integration of cognitive, behavioral, and traditional approaches to play therapy. Attention will be given to both theory and techniques inherent in the cognitive-behavioral play therapy approach. Case examples of short term therapy with preschool and young school-age children with a variety of presenting problems will be presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of Cognitive-Behavioral Play Therapy.

About Video Quality Control. . .
When first deciding to make these video workshops, we had a decision to make: produce them professionally at a very high cost or produce them ourselves at lower cost. Because our goal was to disseminate as much play therapy information as possible to mental health professionals with limited budgets, we decided on the latter. Each video workshop is 3 to 6 hours long, yet we’ve been able to keep the costs under $150. The “trade-off” for this is a slight decrease in video quality and rough cuts and transitions. Many of our videos are recordings of our live webinars and therefore provide an experience similar to the webinars without the ability to interact with the speaker. The recordings are not edited and may have moments of pixelation and decreased video quality. The videos are not glitzy production numbers, but viewers have consistently commented that the quality of information on them is top-notch.
