Scenes from a Play Therapy Conference

The third annual Appalachian Play Therapy Center conference was June 8 and 9 on the main (Columbia) campus of Lindsey Wilson College.  I am taking a much needed rest but wanted to share some scenes from the conference.

Dr. Terry Kottman

, founder of Adlerian play therapy (and a fellow graduate of the

University of North Texas

) was the speaker for the full two day event.  I just love this woman.

When I picked her up at the airport she had a huge suitcase full of toys.

Play therapists do introductions using toys,

and we play, learn, and practice our craft with toys.

Puppets seem to be a favorite with adults I've noticed.

(I think that could be a blogpost in and of itself.)

I love that play therapists aren't afraid to decorate their nametags.

More to come!

Happy weekend everybody!
