On Saturday [16 Nov], Dr Landreth visited the University to address an audience of current and recent students, as well as British Association of Play Therapists (BAPT) members and associates. Nearly 80 delegates were captivated as he spoke on ‘The Art of the Relationship: Deeper Issues’ drawing on fascinating excerpts and case material from his own clinical work in North Texas.

This was the third in a series of annual Winter Workshops run by the Play Therapy programme with the support from BAPT, an accrediting professional body.

The event received positive feedback from delegates with some saying:

“I feel it was an invaluable professional and personal life experience”
“Excellent, dynamic, thought provoking, refreshing. Look forward to the next time!”
“Brilliant. What a rare experience – Thank you”
“Very inspiring, very motivating, very moving… and very funny too!”
“Fantastic workshop… I feel blessed to have seen Landreth speak"
