  • (LIVE) Spirituality in Family and Play Therapy


    LIVE Sept. 13, 2018 12:00-2:00 

    (Contact) 2 CEUs. Presenter: Julie Plunkett, LPC, LCPC.

    Spirituality is an issue that is often neglected in graduate school. We are sometimes uncomfortable with delving into this subject with our adult and child clients. In a world of tolerance, we fear offending someone due to differing political, cultural or even spiritual beliefs. Research has shown that spirituality is a key to resiliency for all ages. Children are more open to appreciate spirituality. This webinar will give an introductory overview of spirituality in family and play therapy. Learn how to use this powerful and underutilized aspect of the human psyche in play therapy.

    LIVE March 28, 2018 3:00-4:00 PM CST

    1 CEU (Contact) 

    Presenter: Allan M. Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S.

    This webinar will address the issue of humility in Play Therapy. Issues related to toys, colleagues, kids and their families, and ourselves, all have an intrinsic connection to the idea of humility. Humility is more than just respect for a client. Humility is how we present ourselves; How we interact with all of the above; How we relate to clients. We sometimes lose sight of what is important, i.e. People, relationships, and ourselves in Play therapy and just focus on how to “solve the problem”. This webinar will be provocative, challenging, unsettling, but most important enjoyable. Learn techniques of practicing humility in the playroom. Like all webinars by Allan Gonsher, you will be challenged.
