Course Description:
Due to COVID-19 health concerns, this one-time online event has been approved by the Association for Play Therapy (APT) for 6 CE CONTACT Hours. See below for full details. Course is limited to 40 attendees only. Once capacity is met, course will be unavailable for purchase. 

Children under 4 are estimated to have about 9 tantrums a week that include kicking, biting, yelling or pushing for five to ten minutes each. Most will outgrow these behaviors due to parenting skills and social norms. However, for many children, these issues only get worse as they enter school and even more so during their teens.

Many pediatricians report that they are ill-equipped to deal with the myriad of anger concerns which parents present to them. In fact, anger issues are the number one cause for referral that brings children to the care of mental health professionals. For many children, anger issues are part of a larger picture of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, ADHD, as well as genetic and biological considerations. Many well-meaning parents only fuel the anger further in a frenzied effort to contain it.

In this engaging and interactive training, play therapists will gain a greater knowledge in how to help clients who struggle with anger, in an effort to help change the pattern as early on as possible. Through play therapy interventions that include hands on activities, games, videos and worksheets, children can be taught and empowered to harness the healthy part of their self-expression and do so in a healthy and effective way.

Participants will learn to engage all kinds of children (main clinical focus is on ages 3 to 14, with some teen skills as well), including the oppositional, resistant, and even those in denial of their anger, helping them work towards achieving their therapeutic goals. The training begins with assessment, helping clients reach self-awareness, sharing psychoeducation, creating accountability and ends by sharing practical play therapy techniques to facilitate the release and expression of anger, through increased insight, and lasting coping skills. Clinicians will walk away empowered to effectively help clients live calmer lives through the skills which the sessions build in them.  
Learning Objectives:
Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Describe how to engage children who are resistant, oppositional, or in denial of their anger.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of 3 new activities and 3 worksheets to use in sessions to help clients with anger.
  • Recall 3 therapeutic songs about anger and 3 games that facilitate treatment in anger management with children.
  • Implement 2 techniques to provide psychoeducation and increase self-awareness about anger to their clients.
  • Identify how to create a space for clients struggling with anger to feel safe and be heard.
  • List 4 videos to share with clients during Telehealth sessions to help facilitate treatment for client struggling with anger.
