This 2-hour webinar looks at the use of play therapy interventions with girls ages 10-12. They are no longer little girls but they’re not quite adolescents and this developmental stage can require a special playful approach in order to build the all-important rapport between therapists and child and develop a play therapy treatment plan that will help girls this age address and work through the issues causing them difficulties.

Learning Objectives:
Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Describe the developmental stage of this window between younger childhood and adolescence and how to build rapport, assess and develop a play therapy treatment plan specifically for girls age 10-12.
  • List 10 play therapy interventions that are generally very effective with “tween" girls.
  • Explain how to involve parents in the course of a play therapy course of treatment and how to provide parents with helpful psycho-education and parenting support.

    I have completed multiple of Lynn’s trainings. They are always very informative and I leave the trainings feelings like I was given practical skills and tips to use and implement in my practice. I would recommend any of her trainings to someone who is wanting to learn about Play Therapy or advance their current skills.

    This was an excellent training and provided a wealth of knowledge regarding working with tween girls. I always thought art therapy would be a great approach but after working with a prejudice art therapist in Baltimore, MD--I lost interest. Now, I have a different approach and outlook. Thank you!
