The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of CCPT with children who were experiencing intrapersonal distress and struggles in interpersonal relationships through a single-case multiple baseline design. Due to the breadth of promising research findings with many presenting concerns, it seems like researching play therapy in way catered to more general presenting concerns would mirror the real-life experience of play therapists and clients while also contributing meaningfully to the literature in demonstrating how CCPT can help reduce a plethora of presenting concerns simultaneously.
