Description

The population of the United States is becoming increasingly diverse—children of color experience higher rates of poverty and trauma due to structural and institutional racism. In turn, they often have access to lower-quality education and physical and mental health care compared to their white peers. To best support under-served populations, play therapists should offer culturally responsive services and advocate for social justice for their clients. Past research has explored play therapists’ attitudes about social justice advocacy, but there has not been a thorough discussion of how play therapists can go from attitudes to action and become social justice advocates for their clients. This workshop will provide participants with concrete ways to advocate for social justice.

Target Audience
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
  • Psychologists
Educational Goal

  • Discuss three ways play therapists can advocate for social justice.
