  • 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.

    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.

    Often kids are referred to counselors at the beginning of the school year. Is it play therapy, behavior management, family counseling, or medication management??
