Mental health professionals can significantly improve rapport and subsequently relationships with children and adolescents (professional AND personal) by integrating play therapy based interventions into their clinical work. In this workshop, participants will learn at least 10 play therapy interventions, to engage kids (from toddler through the high school grades) in therapy. Developmental and cultural issues relevant with this population will be addressed and practical and dynamic interventions will be demonstrated.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1) Identify three ways to use play therapy based interventions with children and adolescents, 2) Explain and demonstrate play therapy interventions suitable for children and adolescents, 3) Create interventions specific to the developmental and emotional needs of youth.
