Course Overview

Course Description:
When a child feels pressure to be perfect, to do everything perfectly, whether it comes from an external source or internally, it can wreak havoc on a child’s ability to function as a happy, normal child.

In this 2 hour webinar we will explore the nature of this very specific kind of anxiety and when it may cross over into OCD. We will look at how to use play therapy to assist children with perfectionism to create new ways of of thinking, seeing and behaving so that they can have a more relaxed and joyful quality of life.
Original recording date: April 15, 2018 Length: 120 Minutes

Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Identify 5 signs of perfectionistic anxiety that can be observed in the playroom and at home and school.
  • Name 10 play therapy techniques to address the child’s perfectionistic thinking and behaving that allow the child to have new and eventually liberating experiences in the play room.
