The Association for Play Therapy launched History Speaks, a great new resource for play therapists, a few years ago. The series consists of a collection of videos of prominent child clinicians answering questions about play therapy and their own practices, and discussing the history of play therapy and APT. The first set of recordings includes Charles Schaefer, Louise Guerney, Dianne Frey, and Lessie Perry. Recent additions include talks with Phyllis Booth, Garry Landreth, and APT President and CEO William M. Burns. The videos can be viewed at the link above, or on the APT YouTube channel (Assn4PlayTherapy). Play therapists will find some interesting stuff in these interviews. It’s great to hear from veterans who have seen the organization, and the technique itself, change over the years. I’m looking forward to more.
