Some children experience difficulties in communication and self-expression due to cultural differences while going through the counseling process. Because play is the universal language for self-expression in children, play therapy techniques can help culturally diverse children increase their communication and self-expression in counseling. This presentation will:

• Help mental health providers understand varied backgrounds and provide culturally competent care
• Highlight issues faced by minority children, the impact on their mental health, and effective treatments that address these issues
• Discuss guidelines on using play therapy techniques in counseling children from various cultural backgrounds
• Provide hands on practice of play therapy interventions that will aid the clinician in providing quality care for the issues faced by the minority child
