This will be an introduction into ethics and a review of ethical decision
making models in a Play Therapy setting. The CACPT Code of Ethics will
be a pivotal component to this workshop, observing the child-therapist relationships,
play therapy case reporting, ethical considerations such as confidentiality, dual
relationships in play therapy.
Standards of practice both from an ethical point of view as well as
professionally will be addressed. Ethics will be looked at in the context of who we are as
play therapists, where we work and how these can influence and affect our decision-making
Key ethical conflicts will be explored and discussed in a play therapy
setting. The Canadian Association for Child and Play Therapy code of ethics and the
application of it to the professional practice as a Child Psychotherapist and Play
Therapist will be reviewed.
