TOPIC: The Use of Music in Play Therapy

Music is a medium of play. Music, like play is important in the lives and development of children. It encourages creativity and exploration, it provides a non-verbal means of communication, and can reduce stress and anxiety.

As play therapists we can blend music into play to help reach children and effect lasting change. 

This training will discuss creative techniques that enables play therapists to integrate play and music. Understand how music can be an effective tool in play therapy, and learn how music can reduce stress and anxiety for children.


Presenter: Sarah Harwood graduated with a BMus music degree from the London College of Music. She has worked as a teacher and a music therapist in the UK and Australia over the past 15 years. Presently,  she is studying her Master of Arts in Counseling at City University of Seattle. She is completing my internship at Center for Human Services with an emphasis on Infant and Early Childhood, and family therapy. Sarah is currently the grad school representative and the Director of Social Media for WAAPT.
