  • Play Therapy Techniques: When Toys Are More Than Toys


    Previously Recorded (Non-Contact) -2 CEs.

    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.

  • Play Therapy with Children with ASD


    (Non-Contact)-2 CEs. 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 therapy, and work with families of children with ASD.
