Saturday Key Note Featuring Nick Cornett, PhD

Speaking on

Family Ties: Using Family Play Therapy to

 Loosen Binds and Strengthen Bonds

Brief Overview: Despite the increasing recognition of the importance of family-oriented clinical practices, research suggests that children are often left out of family therapy, and families are often left out of play therapy (Haslam & Harris, 2011; Sori & Sprenkle, 2004). Come see how family play therapy can provide a developmentally-appropriate and inclusive approach for working with the entire family! 

Friday will be our multi-topic breakout sessions for entry level to advanced clinicians. On Saturday, our keynote speaker, Nick Cornett, will be presenting all day.
