  • (Live) Play Therapy with Children with ASD (2 CEUs)


    LIVE-Jan. 31, 2019 12:00-2:00 PM CST

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

    1 in 88 children are diagnosed with ASD, with males being diagnosed more than females (1:54 vs. 1:252). In addition, many children with ASD do not play in a manner that is beneficial to their development, may engage in inflexible, repetitive play patterns, may not exhibit symbolic or pretend play, and may not develop play scripts or understand the scripts of other children. Given this, it is important for clinicians to really understand the dynamics and symptoms of ASD, and learn creative ways to incorporate play, and work with families of children with ASD.

  • (Live) Play Therapy with EMDR (2 CEUs)


    LIVE Feb. 5, 2019 7:00-9:00 PM CST

    (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.

  • (LIVE) Play Therapy and Countertransference: Best practices

    (Contact) 2 CEUs. Presenter: Sabra Starnes

    In an attempt to continue to appreciate, manage, and utilize countertransference in play therapy, this webinar will explore the significance of this phenomenon. Many questions arise when discussing this paradigm. What a clinician does, how a therapist responds/reacts, and why countertransference should be of concern are many of the questions to be answered in this webinar. Modern day Psychology often dismisses this dimension of our work. Its presence is something in play therapy we want to talk about.

    (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.
