In the Eye of the Storm: The Play Therapist and Divorce


Previously Recorded (Non-Contact)-1 CE.

Presenter: Lynn M. McLean, LCSW-S.

Divorce and separation are a time when children and their parents can benefit from the healing powers of play therapy. But how do you hold confidentiality in the face of a legal battle? And how can the play therapist fullfill their ethical obligation to provide services while navigating complicated legal and ethical situations? These and other issues will be addressed in this seminar, which qualifies for ethics credit.

Update: You Will Only Receive CE Credit from the APT-Association for Play Therapy until April 30, 2020
