The Paradigm of the “Beginnings” Work with Clients in Play Therapy: The Day After


Previously Recorded (Non-Contact) 2 CEs.
Presenter: Allan M. Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S.
After the first session hopefully we have established the goals, objectives, and timeline by which our work will unfold. To those ends, have we stopped to consider are we going to see the child in individual play therapy, the parent(s); are we going to introduce the child to the playroom or the parents to therapy; how will we end each session; and how will we setup the next session. All of these, and more intricate sensitive aspects of play therapy, will be discussed in this webinar. Examples and techniques on how to be effective in our session after our first meeting will be shared.

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