The Paradigm Of The Beginnings Work With Clients In Play Therapy The First Contact


Previously Recorded (Non-Contact) 120 minutes = 2 NBCC hours
Presenter: Allan M. Gonsher, LIMHP, LCSW, RPT-S.
This webinar will discuss referral sources, the initial call, the decision to use individual play therapy or family work, and many other intricate considerations when engaging a client for the first time. We often lose sight of the “joining” aspect of therapy and find ourselves with cancellations or no shows when the initial contact has not been established. This webinar contains wonderful insights into the appreciation of play therapy and its impact on engaging clients.

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