    Looking Deeper into the Presenting Problem: Practicing Cultural Humility in the Play Therapy Setting

    When working with culturally diverse populations the need to look deeper into the presenting problem is more prevalent with those exhibiting symptoms of racial trauma on the rise. Often times clinical professionals are minimizing cultural and racial experiences in their treatment of Black, Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC). This workshop will focus on bringing cultural humility into the play therapy setting and challenging non BIPOC play therapist and mental health professionals with examining their potential biases.

    Learning Objectives: After successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

      • Discuss the connection between play therapy and cultural humility.
      • Describe three ways in which play therapist can practice cultural humility within their play therapy settings.
      • Discuss at least two therapeutic models for focusing on culture and race that can incorporated into play therapy practice.
