    (Contact) 2 CEUs. Presenter: Allan Gonsher

    One can go to numerous Play Therapy Chat rooms, Pinterest, or Workshops to learn Play Therapy techniques. Unfortunately, most do NOT connect a theory of Play Therapy with the technique. They teach you what to do or how to do something. This webinar is unique in that not only will a participant learn the what/how,  but the “WHY”. This webinar guarantees that what you learn from the conceptualization of a case and the “technique” implemented to help the child/family will encourage the clinician to apply the technique to theory to various future cases the therapist will encounter. This will not only be a challenging webinar filled with approaches on how to help kids but help one expand their understanding of Play Therapy.
