Facilitating the Transition between Play in the Classroom and Play Therapy
Muro, Joel; Petty, Karen; DakoGyeke, Mavis
Journal of School Counseling, v4 n17 2006
Play therapists, school counselors, and play developmentalists have much in common as they work with children in clinical, classroom settings, and after school programs. A strong relationship can be forged among the developmentalists (those trained in early child development/education) and those who work with children in program settings (e.g., therapists and counselors). In order to overcome the barriers that are present in responding to the experiences and challenges that children face, this article contends that play therapists, counselors, and play developmentalists can work with children in large play spaces or groups or with single children and exchange valuable information to provide positive experiences.
