In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Liana gained acclaim with her webinar, “Tips and Techniques for Online Therapy with Children.” Thousands of therapists from all over the world gained skills and techniques for transitioning children to online therapy. Now, by popular demand, Liana is back with even more advanced and useful ideas for engaging clients in online therapy.
Many therapists are still adjusting to the new norm of teletherapy. Packed with clinical insight, this fun and interactive webinar will address the hottest issues and most pressing challenges for working with children, teens, and families via online sessions.
Participants will come away with ready-to-use strategies for working with hard-to-engage clients including preschoolers, distracted children, and resistant teens. Resources will be shared on creating virtual play therapy rooms, and incorporating online games into teleplay sessions.
Liana will share MORE of her own creative ideas, plus she will incorporate best practice tips and playful interventions from leaders in the telehealth field.
***There will be a short Q & A at the end of this webinar, PLUS a more in-depth one-hour Q & A on October 22 1-2pm with telehealth experts Dr. Rachel Altvater and Dr. Jessica Stone. This will be an opportunity to get answers to common questions related to virtual playrooms, online games, and other hot topics. The Q & A on October 22 is FREE to anyone who registers for the October 15 live or recorded webinar. Both webinars on October 15 and October 22 will be recorded for those who are unable to watch the live broadcasts.
