Play therapy practitioners using LEGO® bricks in mental health treatment can help clients enhance communication and problem-solving skills by building models to externalize thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Combining the use of LEGO® bricks and metaphors in play therapy practice can break down barriers that interfere with an individual’s ability to communicate problems.

Registration for Self-Study Courses (2.5 CEs each) is available individually or bundled
