The “4 Pillars of Play Therapy” – A training presentation I gave to the 300 school and guidance counselors from the Hillsborough County School System in the Tampa, FL area.

Aug 31, 2021

This is a special episode of the Play Therapy Parenting Podcast. I was invited to give a training/presentation to the 300, or so, school and guidance counselors from the Hillsborough County School System on Play Therapy techniques. So during this hour training, they were exposed to the philosophies and principles of play therapy, the “4 Pillars of Play Therapy”, and then some bonus topics, including the impact excessive device use is having on kids today. Finally, I channel my best “Oprah” and I give everyone special access to my COMPLETE training on the “4 Pillars” (because I can’t make everyone an expert in only 1 hour). That FREE access to the “4 Pillars” training is available to you as well. Just go to and sign up for the free training to experience the complete course on learning the skills in the “4 Pillars of Play Therapy”. Enjoy!
