  • (LIVE) Play Therapy Techniques: When Toys Are More Than Toys

    $60.00

    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.

    Previously Recorded (Non-Contact) 1 CEU.

    Presenter: Cindy Lee, LCSW, RPT-S.

    Sand Work is a combination of what you already know and love about sand tray and play therapy but adds a twist from Jungian psychology. Adolescents and adults are adept at addressing their painful experiences from the thinking part of the brain (frontal lobes). Sand Work allows adolescents and adults to go deeper then what they already know by symbolically creating within the sand thereby offering opportunity for new insight and growth. In Sand Work the repressed material moves from the unconscious to a conscious awareness where the client can confront it, learn from it, and make choice what to do with it. How to apply Jungian Play Therapy theory to work in the sand and the role of the therapist in Sand Work will be explored.
