This training was an excellent place to learn specific activities to implement in my practice. The presenters were knowledgeable on their topic and brought to the table alternatives with the activities supplies if you are unable to obtain what they used for the activity. I loved learning the science behind the activities and how to discuss afterwards with our clients.

Both instructors presented the material on enuresis and encopresis in a very informative and engaging manner. I learned applicable techniques I can use with clients (and with my own child’s bed wetting issues) such as creating a visual bathroom map to better help a child that is dealing with this issue.

I really enjoyed the discussion of defense mechanisms and games. I especially liked learning about mind masking, a useful technique that we as therapists should master.

This training was very well done and so helpful during this time when clinicians are heavily engaging in teletherapy. I feel I can utilize each technique presented because they were presented and explained so well. The handout given along with this training is also very well put together and greatly assists me in facilitating various interventions.
