This year has been one of challenge worldwide, with everyone dealing with the pandemic and its effects. Negative emotional responses have been on the rise, with people of all ages showing signs of emotional distress. Play between a child and an adult can be one of the main factors in decreasing the negative emotional effects of the pandemic and helping children manage their distress. Meanwhile, as adults are also stressed, unfortunately, not all adults are emotionally able to provide the emotional care to the children around them.
Professional mental health support is needed more than ever in this pandemic world. With that, many have turned to technology as a saving grace, enabling clinicians to continue providing much needed mental health services to those both near and far. Those who were already technologically advanced, as well as those who are technological dinosaurs, have incorporated Telehealth as the next best thing to face to face sessions. This webinar will highlight how one can conduct effective child and play therapy online with young children, adolescents, and families. Demonstrations of activities that can be utilized with various ages and number of people will be shown, along with presentations of actual case examples. Come and have fun playing and learning online!About the Series:
