How Play Therapists can Engage Parents and Professionals

This workbook is the missing component for many practitioners of Play Therapy and child counseling. It is challenging to translate the philosophy and practice of Play Therapy into a common language even among mental health professionals. This workbook engages play therapists in building professional competence and confidence that are the foundation for sound consultation. Some highlights include:

  • Parent & Professional Profiles
  • Strategies for Engaging
  • Consultation Checklists
“Dr. Mullen and June Rickli have done a masterful job reminding us of the importance of being advocates not only for children, but for the field of play therapy. The reader is reminded of the critical skills necessary in being a sensitive and reflective consultant with parents and other professionals. Engagement and advocacy are interwoven throughout the workbook, with page after page of clear explanations, meaningful exercises and thoughtful responses to some of the more challenging consultation experiences. This manual is a gift to the skill set of all play therapists, as it further defines our professional identities.”
~Mary Anne Peabody, LCSW, RPT-S

10 Interventions to Help Children Heal Wounds of Loss

By: Jodi A. Mullen PhD, LMHC, NCC, RPT-S
Ashley Lawton MS, LMHC, NCC, RPT
Rikki Ziegen MS, CAS, CCPT

This DVD includes 10 specialized techniques and activities that can be used when working with children who have experienced loss of any kind.

Using these interventions, the counselor can address some of those feelings and allow the child to physically express themselves in a safe environment and in a safe manner.

Playing Fair: Ethics and Play Therapy – Webinar DVD

In this Webinar, Dr. Jodi Ann Mullen PhD, LMHC, NCC, RPT-S discusses the ethics of Play Therapy, both Child-Centered and other approaches. Ethics are the guidelines and standards that ensure that a therapist is practicing and using their skills in an appropriate and responsible manner that allows for client healing and acceptance. In regards to Play Therapy, there are many ethical issues that must be considered by a play therapist as they work with their client, the client’s guardians, and other professionals involved in the client’s life. Some of these considerations deal with consultation, the client’s right to privacy and confidentiality, the use of techniques and skills in specific situations, and the image of the profession as both a mental health worker and a play therapist. Dr. Mullen goes into great depth as she explains the complex world of ethics and how it overlaps into the profession of a play therapist. The DVD includes video powerpoint, as well as an interactive feel with questions and responses given by the participants of the original Webinar. A must for any aspiring or current play therapist, regardless of style and approach!


How Play Therapists Can Engage Parents and Professionals – Seminar DVD

In this seminar, Dr. Jodi Weinstein Mullen PhD, LMHC, NCC, RPT-S and June Rickli MS, LMHC, CCPT-S, RPT discuss the importance of consultation as a play therapist. They offer great insight into the use of consultation to improve the healing process with a child in play therapy, acknowledging that the work parents and other professionals do is as important as the work the child does, as well as the play therapist. Play therapy is not widely known or understood and it is part of the play therapist’s job to explain the work of play therapy, and also, offer a professional image of the practice. Working together creates a web of support for the child, and including others in the process allows all to share a larger picture of the child’s life and experience. This DVD has an interactive feel as seminar participants offer stories and their own insight into this complex and very important part of play therapy. This DVD offers many strategies and techniques that can help you expand and improve your work with parents/guardians and other professionals!
