Mini Series Part 2: Navigating Ethical Issues in Play Therapy

Ethical issues can be confusing to identify and navigate as some of them do not appear to pose a problem at first glance. When working with children and their families, it is important that clinicians are aware of the potential ethical dilemmas that can arise throughout treatment.
