Course Overview

Via live interactive webinar
Course Description:
Note: Note: This training is approved by APT Approved Provider #20-610 for 3 CE Live Webinar hours. Course is limited to 50 attendees only. Once capacity is met, course will be unavailable for purchase. 

Children are often difficult to engage in play therapy and are reluctant to implement skills learned in sessions. This can be frustrating and challenging, even for seasoned play therapists. The challenge of working with younger clients is further compounded by their fear of entering therapy, poor motivation for treatment, and their developmental capacity which can make it difficult for them to learn and apply skills. Techniques that are appealing and delivered by an empathically attuned therapist will captivate the client’s interest and motivate them to utilize skills.

Join best-selling author and international speaker Liana Lowenstein, as she presents creative play therapy techniques to build key skills such as emotional regulation, problem-solving, pro-social behavior and flexible thinking. You will learn ideas to motivate children and teens to practice and utilize skills learned in sessions.

Since caregiver involvement is key to children’s progress, Liana will outline creative ways of engaging caregivers and motivating them to follow through with at-home skill practice.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn innovative strategies to equip children, teens, and their caregivers with essential skills to foster positive behavior change!

I really liked using her examples (videos) so I can have practical examples that I can follow. I really liked the various activities that she presented as the techniques can be playful, but still teaches kids appropriate social skills and regulation skills.

I enjoyed the training. It supported the importance of regulation skills with both CG and child then moved into strategies for specific behaviors. Also ended with processing each strategy so every moment is a psycheducation moment.
