Many children are referred to play therapy to assist in their adjustment to divorce. They may feel vulnerable, overwhelmed and confused by their emotions as well as the family dynamics. They may also feel anxious in therapy and reluctant to talk about the divorce. Providing a safe space and play-based activities may assist the child’s process and help them safely express their thoughts and feelings.

This webinar will highlight the most current theory and research on children of divorce, and present assessment and treatment techniques to guide children through the complications of divorce.

The interventions presented in this training will address important treatment domains. They are: Helping the child develop effective coping skills, facilitating the developmentally appropriate expression of feelings, clarifying divorce-related misconceptions, easing the stress associated with transitioning between two homes, Securing the child’s disengagement from parental conflict and eliminating the child’s potential for self-blame for the divorce. The Interventions presented can be used in individual play therapy sessions, as well as children’s support groups.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the course and thought the instructor did a great job of explaining how to support the client dealing with divorce through different interventions. I liked that there was both a video and a PDF as it meant I could watch and listen and then have read through of the pdf too.

    I have always wanted to attend Liana's training and admired her approach to working with the children. Living overseas in Asia was not convenient for me. I am grateful for the opportunity to attend and learn Liana's training via online. COVID19 make it open to the idea of opening and made it accessible to overseas participants like myself.
