Recap of the 2022 Conference

The 2022 Indiana Play Therapy conference was held at Valle Vista Conference Center In Greenwood Indiana on June16 and 17. Kara Holt, Ph.D, LPC, RPT-S, CCPT-S, CPRT-S presented information on strategies and tools for effective parent consultations within the play therapy process and use of Humanistic Play Therapy to heal relational trauma and attachment. The conference also provided Ethics training by Davi Stein-Kiley, LCSW, LMFT, LCAC, RPT-S with a focus on ethical considerations in providing family play therapy with children and family members.

Not only was a lot of information consumed by those who attended but there was also time to network and re-establish friendships. The Self Esteem Shop provided plenty of play therapy books and tools to use in any Play Therapist office.

Our annual meeting was held and new bylaws were approved. We celebrated those members who recently received their RPT and presented the 2022-2023 board members.
