  • Getting Ready for School…Does that have anything to do with Play Therapy and a Play Room?

    $30.00

    1 CEU (Non-Contact)

    Presenter: Allan Gonsher, LSCSW, RPT/S

    Often kids are referred to counselors at the beginning of the school year. Is it play therapy, behavior management, family counseling, or medication management?? Play therapists need to understand, appreciate, suggest, guide, and confront “school issues” that enter the play room. Do different toys mean different things during school, summer school, breaks? What toys do we use? How? When? This workshop will address all these issues.

  • Stop it! Should I bully and tease or just be sarcastic? Does this have any relationship to Play Therapy?

    $30.00

    1 CEU (Non-Contact)

    Presenter: Allan Gonsher, LSCSW, RPT/S

    Many of our children are bullied and teased at school. As clinicians, we need to distinguish between bullying, teasing, and being sarcastic. Too often children end up tattling and blaming which creates additional problems for all involved. When all these sensitive behaviors take place, we miss opportunities to help children focus on building a strong self-esteem in order to navigate these aggressive behaviors.

  • The Holidays: Using Play Therapy to Help Children Deal with the Holidays

    1 CEU (Non-Contact)

    Presenter: Allan Gonsher, LSCSW, RPT/S

    During the Holiday “season” we often forget about children’s challenges in school, family, friends, and within themselves.  Depression, anxiety, and ADHD are often diagnosed and treated more heavily during these stressful times.  What happened to the joy, fun, and warm feelings that were characteristic during Holiday “seasons”?  Watching children in the play room with the use/intervention of defined play therapy techniques can often help children emancipate from difficult relationships, feelings, or behavior.  Play therapy 101 can/should be implemented during this season.

    LIVE-Nov. 29, 2018 12:00-2:00 PM CST

    (Contact) -2 CEUs. Presenter: Dianna Green, MSW, LCSW.

    On special occasions toys take on a life of their own. When is a ball more than a ball and how do you play checkers 50 days in a row with enthusiasm? These questions will be explored and ANSWERED! The nature of the play space changes with each child and therefore the demands change with each passing hour. In play therapy, how one meets these demands with the same toys on a daily basis is different than other modalities. In this play therapy webinar we will explore how to meet these special challenges. The clinician will explore ways to develop personal comfort with his own toy selection and to deliver maximum intervention to the child client.

    To appreciate Jung and Freud and their discussions of the “Archetype” are part of this webinar. This background helps in knowing how to function as a play therapist. When trying to understand and define countertransference, we often want to “know what to do”. Once a clinician can define, become aware of, and process it, the ability to function in a playroom becomes much more successful. The Practical application of countertransference and play therapy is a complicated phenomenon.
