    • The process of building a relationship with the child
    • Following the child’s lead
    • Facilitating the development of the child’s strengths
    • Responding to accidents in the playroom
    • Building a child’s self-esteem
    • Returning responsibility to the child
    • Participating in a child’s play without structuring
    • Empowering the child
    • Dealing with a child reluctant to leave the playroom

Landreth provides audio commentary throughout to highlight key moments in the session and emphasize the basic principles of the child centered approach. Viewers will find watching this master therapist and pioneer of play therapy to be a unique and valuable teaching and learning opportunity.
