Many expressive materials exist in standard play therapy rooms, but not all play therapists have spent time experiencing the full range of uses of these materials. This 2-day workshop will explore advanced uses and integration of expressive play therapy materials from various forms of visual art to creative writing. Time will also be used to explore how understanding information from the relational neurosciences can enhance expressive play therapy moments and play therapist self care.


1. Discuss the intersecting histories of play therapy with expressive therapies 

2. Discuss information from the relational neurosciences as it applies to expressive play therapy 

3. Identify play therapy materials that need more therapist mastery for effective use in order to foster emotional wellness         

4. Describe the application of advanced play therapy techniques to client use of expressive materials  

5. Demonstrate play therapy techniques related to expressive use of art materials 

6. Demonstrate play therapy techniques integrated with expressing writing and storytelling to help facilitate communication
