Purpose: Play is the first language of a child; talk-therapy is generally too advanced and not as client-centered of an approach with the child population. Learning ways to connect with young clients is crucial to their ability to succeed in reaching their goals and improving their quality of life. Clinicians are often “out of touch” with play and understanding how play therapy themes can help a client work through their mental health struggles. We will learn tangible strategies for a variety of issues for the attendee to use in their practice.
Method: This training will use Powerpoint presentation, video, interactive dialogue and lecture.
Audience (who): Licensed mental health professionals. Nurses can receive reciprocal CEUs. CEUs are approved for Social Workers, Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapists CEUs (RCS030903) and Chemical Dependency CEUs. CE Broker tracking number: 50-2404
