About this Class:
Come on a creative counseling journey and learn practical activities to start, progress and end play and family therapy sessions.
Making therapy less dependent on talking can benefit clients of all ages who struggle to verbalize their experiences and big emotions. Children, teens and adults can all benefit from creative ways to express, explore and resolve difficult issues.
In this webinar, we will use the metaphors of journey, travel and discovery in creative activities to assist clients (aged 3 to 103) managing a range of presenting issues including anxiety, Covid-19 challenges, out-of-home care, parent separation and other grief and loss issues. We will explore playful ways to introduce counseling, invite participation, manage the emotions of change and challenge, and end counseling sessions. See demonstrations and hear clinical case applications of therapeutic activities using art, drama, storytelling, and games around the metaphor of journey. Activities presented can be used in therapeutic group contexts as well as individual counseling, family and play therapy sessions. All aboard to learn new creative techniques for the counseling journey.
