Training Description

 

This play therapy training is offered Live In-Person for contact hours and LIVE Webinar via Zoom for LIVE WEBINAR/non-contact hours.


Therapy with teens involves adaptive techniques to address various presenting symptoms while considering an adolescent’s developmental level and establishing strong rapport. Engaging Teens Creatively with Play Therapy is an informational and experiential training that provides therapists the opportunity to gain skills for the therapy room when working with adolescent clients. The training provides therapists various considerations to assess a teen’s readiness for therapy and levels of parent involvement. Creative interventions, a focus on client’s strengths, and integrating the therapist’s modalities will be explored to generate new approaches for the therapy room when working with this population. Therapists will identify complications they have experienced in working with teens that may be impacting the therapeutic relationship. Participants will we be taught creative interventions for building rapport, addressing self-esteem, approaching social relationships, and exploring negative cognitions.
