Course Overview

Via recorded webinar
Course Description:
APT Primary Focus Area(s):
Seminal Theories: 1 CE
Skills and Methods: 1 CE
Total Play Therapy CE Hours: 2 CE

The relationship and connection between therapist and child client is the essential and foundational piece to effective play therapy according to Dr. Garry Landreth and the 8 principles of Virginia Axline. The process of establishing that necessary foundational rapport while allowing for ample opportunity for the therapist to assess and conceptualize the child’s presenting issues and context therein can be achieved effectively with a balance of child-centered play therapy along with facilitative play-based interventions and techniques. 
Original recording date: 9/20/2019 Length: 120 min
Learning Objectives:
Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Explain the foundational basis of child centered theoretical orientation and meaningful, authentic application.
  • Describe the most recent research that supports empirical establishment of efficacy of child centered play therapy.
  • Name 5 ways play serves as an agent of change and growth in terms of forming and maintaining relationship in the play therapy process.
  • Name 10 elements of the rapport-building process including Axline’s 8 principles of play therapy.
  • List at least 10 ice-breaking and initial assessment play-based techniques to assist in establishing the therapeutic relationship.

    "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 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.

    I really found this training to meet all the objectives it laid out. It not only affirmed some of the things I already knew, but it also provided me with new language to present to my clients and parents in how to understand anger and emotion dysregulation. The instructors were clear in their explanations and provided really great hands-on play therapy techniques for real-world scenarios.

    This training on school refusal was so helpful and practical. Instructor Lynn Louise Wonders shared a wealth of knowledge of what could be happening for a child as well as provided different theoretical responses that can be used to work with children and families as they work through the challenges of such. Lynn also provided several valuable resources that can be used and purchased when working with such families. I found the training to be extremely helpful and tactile. I would strongly recommend this training to anyone who is considering taking such.

    What an amazing training! Dr. Treisman was able to articulate advanced concepts in a way that was easy to understand and applicable to my client cases.

    The instructor presented the topic of child protection versus parental rights, and subsequently child right, and grandparent rights in a very interesting and engaging manner.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.
