  • (Live) 10 Play Therapy Techniques

    $60.00

    LIVE June 25, 2019 7:00-9:00 PM CST

    (Contact) 2 CEUs. Presenter: Allan Gonsher

    One can go to numerous Play Therapy Chat rooms, Pinterest, or Workshops to learn Play Therapy techniques. Unfortunately, most do NOT connect a theory of Play Therapy with the technique. They teach you what to do or how to do something. This webinar is unique in that not only will a participant learn the what/how,  but the “WHY”. This webinar guarantees that what you learn from the conceptualization of a case and the “technique” implemented to help the child/family will encourage the clinician to apply the technique to theory to various future cases the therapist will encounter. This will not only be a challenging webinar filled with approaches on how to help kids but help one expand their understanding of Play Therapy.

    $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.
