    Play Therapists can do Home-based therapists know it can be hard for some people to get to an office for an appointment. Illness, disability, personal crisis, lack of funds, transportation issues, or childcare are all reasons a person might not be able to get to therapy. Family play therapy in the home can address many of these obstacles.

    When play therapy  is provided at home with families progress  can develop more quickly with the family. This is because famines  in therapy can be more relaxed in their own homes than in an office. As a result, effective treatment can progress, and healing may happen more easily.

  • Play Therapy with EMDR (2 CEUs)

    $60.00

    (Non-Contact) 2 CEUs. Presenter: Dr. Whitehead

    Similar to EMDR in adults, the use of EMDR in children allows them to be able to heal from emotional distress caused by their negative life experiences. EMDR can be used with children who are both verbal and even pre-verbal, and can be a great supplement to play therapy. As the therapist, your role is to help the child identify a target memory that causes them emotional distress and the child will then identify a negative thought that is associated with that accessible memory. Dual Attention Stimulation or Bilateral Stimulation (e.g. “EMDR buzzies”) is utilized in order to help the child think about the distressing event while engaging in something else. Therefore, with the use of “buzzies” children are able to relax and essentially reduce their negative emotions.

    1 CEU (Non-Contact)

    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

    $30.00

    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.
