Day 1: Partners in Play: An Introduction to Adlerian Play Therapy. In this entertaining workshop, Terry Kottman, the "inventor" of Adlerian play therapy, will introduce you to Adlerian play therapy, a method of integrating the concepts and techniques of Individual Psychology with the practice of play therapy. You will learn how to apply several of the unique ways that Adlerians conceptualize children and the significant adults in their lives: goals of misbehavior, the Crucial Cs, and personality priorities and how to use those concepts in planning your interventions with child clients, their parents, and their teachers.

Day 2: Applications of Adlerian Play Therapy Across the Lifespan. In this interactive, experiential workshop, you will learn intervention techniques for establishing relationships with clients, exploring clients' life-styles, helping clients gain insight into their lifestyles, and reorienting and reeducating clients. We will explore play therapy strategies, art techniques, metaphors, and storytelling strategies for working with a wide range of clients–children, adolescents, and adults. You will leave this workshop with a plethora of new activities for your play therapy tool kit that you can use in your practice on Monday.

Terry Kottman, Ph.D., NCC, RPT-S, LMHC, founded The Encouragement Zone, a center in Cedar Falls, Iowa, where she provides play therapy training and supervision, life coaching, counseling, and “playshops” for women. Terry developed Adlerian play therapy, an approach to counseling children that combines the ideas and techniques of Individual Psychology and play therapy. She regularly presents workshops and writes about play therapy, activity-based counseling, school counseling, and life coaching. She is the author of Partners in Play, Play Therapy: Basics and Beyond, and several other books.
