COUN7505: Play Therapy with the Neurodiverse

This course will give an overview of neurodiverse clients and the effective treatments that target not only the socio-emotional and behavioral challenges of the neurodiverse, but also mediate the neurological and developmental impact of these differences. Students will learn which evidence-based, brain-based technique to utilize while attempting to decipher how to make these treatments more child-centered, playful, and developmentally appropriate. An integrated, brain-based approach in play therapy with the neurodivergent population will be presented. Fee: Additional fee required.
