Abstract

Child-centered play therapy (CCPT) can be a valuable creative method to gain understanding of children’s life, culture, and needs. This approach allows children to play out life problems in an accepting environment through the experiential and cultural components inherent in creative interventions such as CCPT. This manuscript will share insights and examples in the use of CCPT to provide culturally competent services to a diverse population of child clients.
