Course Overview

Via recorded webinar
Course Description:
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is one of the most prevalent disorders diagnosed in children. While there are many different approaches to treating children with ADHD, directive play therapy interventions help to remediate the skills deficits such as short attention span, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. 

This webinar will highlight the diagnostic features of ADHD, and will present practical and effective interventions to help children aged 4-12:
  • Improve impulse control
  • Increase attention and focus
  • Slow down the mind and body
  • Identify constructive ways to use energy
  • Utilize strategies to shift from one activity to the next
  • Increase pro-social behavior
  • Improve academic performance for in-person and online school 

Interventions will also be presented for use by parents and teachers to increase positive behavior at home and school.

The presenter will discuss ways to optimize online therapy sessions for children with ADHD.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn new and innovative approaches to help get children motivated, focused, organized, and performing closer to their true potential.

This training will combine lecture, activity demonstrations, and experiential exercises.

I had studied DBT some, but never in relation to a Bipolar diagnosis. The techniques and considerations given were very helpful! Treating the person and the coping behavior, rather than their diagnosis as a definition of who they are is an amazing lens to learn from! These techniques can help anyone with Bipolar, their loved ones, or anyone experiencing life stressors. Sheri was very easy to listen to and the time flew by.

Batsheva was very organized, clearly well-prepared, and had lots of great personal stories and examples to make sense of her strategies.

This training balances emphasis on the basics of online therapy with children and specific and useful interventions that can be done via telehealth with children. The interventions provided can be used with a wide array of focus/concentration abilities and a variety of symptoms/diagnoses. They are both fun to help with engagement, and grounding to help with kids who are easily amped up or dysregulated by physically active interventions. I appreciate the variety of interventions and that many of them can be implemented both via telehealth and in person.

"It's a Beautiful Day in the Playborhood" exceeded my expectations. I found it to be quite inspirational being introduced to the creative and practical therapeutic techniques that could be implemented immediately in my practice, as well as broadening my perspective on alternative approaches that I have not been exposed to before. Therefore, the wonderful references and resources that were provided is an excellent starting point to read up on these further. In addition to this, having presenters from all over the globe was a wonderful opportunity to be exposed to a broader therapeutic community. A webinar well worth attending. Looking forward to the next one!

This training exceeded my expectations. As a pre-licensed therapist, I learned so much about Sand Tray therapy, but also play therapy in general, and various seminal theories (theoretical orientations) that can inform my practice. I walked away feeling confident in implementing sand tray therapy with clients. Dr. April is clearly knowledgeable, and is a skilled therapist, as well as presenter - she made the training fun, authentic and engaging (even as someone that watched the recorded session). It was nice to have the option to take this as a recorded training so I could complete it on my own time, and at my own pace.

I thought the instructor was knowledgeable, but the training would have been more beneficial if there were more interventions that didn't require buying a lot of supplies. Also, I would have liked to see interventions that were simpler and would not take up the entire session or multiple sessions. Plus, things that are less messy would have been helpful because in my setting I don't have a sink nearby to wash up messes from paint or slime.

I'm happy I attended the course. I learned a lot of tools and innovative resources to engage children online. It is hard to plan and try to retain the focus of children through a monitor, but the techniques and ideas provided are fun, and children love fun. If they do not feel like it is a session or exercise, they will look forward to meeting the counselor weekly or during the scheduled time. The facilitator did a great job giving examples and including attendees to participate. Although I was in the crowd, she made me feel like a happy kid in the session. She does an amazing job with her tone, occasional smiles and making the attendees feel welcome. I will use some of what I learned today and apply it to my practice.

Creative Interventions for Bereaved Children was absolutely worth my time to attend. While I didn't participate in the live webinar, the content and information was incredibly useful and applicable in the support and counseling I provide for Hospice groups and camps for children and families. Ms. Lowenstein is incredibly experienced with a wealth of knowledge to share with all who attend; I valued the training and materials provided such as different play and expressive techniques used with children and teens specific to extreme trauma, i.e. suicide, homicide deaths and how to focus on clear and appropriate ways to work with both child and parent/guardian in interaction, honesty, clear focus and so on. The resources provided have already been very helpful, i.e. Jeremy's Journey and her Pinterest board, and supportive going forward in counseling my individuals and groups. I would definitely attend another Core Wellness and Liana Lowenstein training course in the future as the information is invaluable. Thank you.

I loved all the resources shared, and never felt I was sitting through a 'sales pitch'! It is ever so important to have a variety of resources available - many of the presenters happily shared options! There were a few presenters who simply 'read' their power point - (not as engaging!); and one or two who spoke WAY too fast for anyone who was taking notes (good thing there is access to the recording!). Overall, however - the "learning" was fun, the information relevant (& current) and the variety of presenters and backgrounds & theory bases made for an excellent presentation! ...AND a fun-filled way to start my day!

This is my second year of attending the webinar for Playborhood. I enjoyed all of the presenters and the activities that they presented in 2021 that I was excited to see what was in store for 2022. THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT!! I got some more great activities to use with my clients. It also inspired me and got my creative wheels going in my head to add to the activities presented. I can't wait for the next one! One day I hope to be a presenter for Playborhood!

A very high level of competence and command over a very large breadth and depth of material, that's not at all strictly "textbook" knowledge, or too "clinical." Lots of grounded, real-world application and examples, along with plenty of insights, implications, and tips, that are clearly from actual experience, and typically not found in the textbooks or academic settings.

This training was motivating as Shlomo shared the information with authenticity and passion for the Imago model. I gained a true understanding that Imago Therapy is a model that promotes connection within the space between where couples often don't spend safe and quality time strengthening their relationships. The introduction course demonstrated this well and leaves a yerning to receive advanced knowledge. I truly believe Imago is a game-changer and can offer stonger connections not only between romantic partners, but other dyadic relationships.

As a clinical psychologist and Registered Play Therapist I have had decades of training and taken countless seminars. Lynn Louise Wonders' 20 Play Therapy Interventions for Anxiety with Older Children was a delightful surprise. Her enthusiasm and deep understanding of what it takes to engage this sometimes difficult age group by using creative and engaging strategies is the best I have ever seen. The strategies were indeed creative yet presented with succinct clarity and straightforward instructions. Sometimes these seminars can be tedious at the end of which one wonders what of this will I actually use, but every strategy she taught made intuitive sense for the play therapy process and was easy to grasp. I eager to try them. At the end, she presents several short well done psycho-educational videos that could be used directly with our clients and sprinkles the entire presentation with resources. Thank-you for this engaging educational experience .
