Building and maintaining trust and rapport is perhaps the most important piece of effective play therapy. Sometimes this means participating in a child’s specific, eccentric or even exclusive and repetitious interests. Investing this time now can reap big developmental rewards later. This course teaches you how to follow a child between exclusive and interactive states of engagement in a way that respects the child and maximizes your interactive time. Putting time and attention into your relationship with your child only benefits your child’s developmental journey.
