Participants will submit two Play Therapy room designs:

2) Group Play therapy session.
This module will be focussing on Play Therapy Group sessions and is broken down into three sections:

c) Conducting your own group Play Therapy session
Participants will receive a Tutorial discussion video and a video of a group session conducted by Lucy Bowen, along with additional resource materials. There is a focus in this module on understanding music, movement and sensory play.
Participants should conduct and record their own group session (you will be provided with full guidelines on how to do this and should you need assistance, we can aid in finding children to take part). An alternative mode of assessment is available to those unable to record or carry out sessions.
3) Understanding the stages of play.
Participants will receive staged videos imitating children's behaviours in the Play Therapy room..
Participants are to watch and review each video - what stage of play? How would you engage with the child etc.

Participants should critically review each session - the positives and negatives of each. What did the therapist do right? What could have been done differently etc.
