About the program:

This interactive workshop allows participants a hands on experience as they learn the dynamic Oaklander Model of play therapy through demonstrations and direct work with clay, drawings, and projective cards.

The Oaklander Model is a Gestalt approach to play therapy. This highly creative and effective model prioritizes the therapist/client relationship and is focused on honoring the child’s process rather than interpreting behaviors.

While a foundation in Gestalt Play Therapy is not necessary, Gestalt Columbus will happily make reading recommendations for interested parties.
