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

    $30.00

    1 CE (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 in play therapy. 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.

    Previously Recorded (Non-Contact)-1 CE.

    Presenter: Ann Thomas, LCSW.

    What constitutes a successful supervision experience?

  • Sand Work with Adolescents and Adults in Play Therapy

    $30.00

    Previously Recorded (Non-Contact) 1 CE.

    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.
