Have you ever felt nervous or stuck when you encountered a cultural opportunity, which is a therapeutic cultural marker, or felt shallow about your responses to such moment in play therapy? This workshop is grounded in the multicultural orientation (MCO) framework which consists of three pillars; cultural humility, cultural opportunities, and cultural comfort (Owen et al., 2011). Cultural humility is the organizing principle of the MCO (Davis et al., 2018) in which the therapist holds an open and nonsuperior stance and focuses on the other person in therapeutic interactions and is manifested in the overall way of being. Enhanced cultural humility will lead toward more congruent, acceptance and empathetic presence of a play therapist. In this workshop, presenters will discuss how cultural humility, opportunities, and comfort are manifested in play therapy and provide participants with an opportunity to explore their cultural humility and comfort. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will identify define cultural humility and identify two characteristics of cultural humility. 
  2. Participants will identify and reflect on situations in which play therapists could demonstrate cultural humility in play therapy. 
  3. Participants will identify ways in which play therapists could continue cultivating our own cultural humility.

Materials needed: An item that is meaningful to you and your cultural identities, crayons, and blank papers

The Multicultural Playroom: Intentionally Designing Your Space for Inclusivity

The play therapist is responsible for providing an environment of inclusivity – the playroom. Presenters will offer steps and materials for best practices to ensure children of multiple intersectional identities feel a sense of safety and belonging in the playroom.  

Play therapists are called upon to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse child population. In addition to facilitation of multiculturally-inclusive play therapy through skills and approaches, play therapists are responsible for providing an environment of inclusivity – the playroom. Given that traditional child-centered play therapy literature (e.g., Axline, 1974; Cochran et al., 2010; Landreth, 2012; Ray, 2011; VanFleet et al., 2010) provides limited discussion of concrete steps to ensure cultural inclusivity for playroom structure and materials/toys, there is a need for play therapists to be more intentional in their selections for the playroom. Although researchers who have conducted play therapy studies with specific populations often note the modification of playroom materials, there has not been a study explicitly focused on playroom materials and settings to meet diversity needs in over 15 years until now. The limitation in existing literature suggests that research is needed to inform play therapists’ decision-making in designing a multicultural playroom that fits the needs of a rapidly diversifying society. Based on recent research findings, this workshop provides an intensive exploration of what constitutes a multicultural playroom (Ray et al., 2022). The diverse team of presenters will offer a clear and detailed evidence-based description of a multicultural playroom, active behaviors for play therapists to ensure cultural inclusivity in their playrooms, and a list of toys/materials that are essential to a multicultural playroom. The goal of this workshop is for participants to reflect on their intentionality toward cultural inclusivity and the role of each selected toy/material.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will define a multicultural playroom
  2. Participants will identify 7 ways a play therapist can ensure the playroom is culturally-inclusive
  3. Participants will identify toys and materials that are culturally-inclusive
  4. Participants will identify toys and materials that are culturally-questionable in the playroom
