Course Description:
Liana’s two webinars on “Tips and Techniques for Playful Online Therapy with Children and Teens” were huge hits and helped thousands of therapists all over the world learn innovative ways to conduct virtual sessions. In this third installment, Liana interviews leading Telehealth experts and shares their best practice tips and creative therapeutic techniques.

For many mental health practitioners, online therapy continues to be the most viable option for supporting children, teens, and families. However, practitioners and clients are struggling with Telehealth fatigue. It is becoming more and more challenging to engage clients and sustain their interest and motivation in online sessions. This training will present new ideas and creative strategies to help make online sessions meaningful and effective. 

The webinar will feature pre-recorded interviews between Liana Lowenstein and leaders in the teleplay therapy field. Liana will offer live commentary and will outline guidelines for selecting play and expressive arts techniques.

  • Sophia Ansari
  • Josué Cardona
  • April Duncan
