In this webinar...

The global pandemic of COVID-19 and the shelter-in-place orders we all have been living with for 6 months have changed the way many play therapists conduct play therapy sessions. Telehealth play therapy has replaced in-person play sessions for many play therapists.  Is it working?

This free 1 hour webinar will examine how telehealth is impacting engagement in play therapy.  We will be focusing especially on the therapeutic alliance and engagement with the client and families we work with.  Play-based interventions and case examples will be utilized to further understanding and support new ideas for effective treatment.

What you’ll get:

  • 1 non-contact CE (Continuing education credit for Play Therapy)
  • This supports you to meeting some of the credentialing criteria for the Association for Play Therapy. You must have 150 CE’s in play therapy-specific training.
  • We will cover advanced tools to overcome the unique challenges that complicate family situations and the therapy you provide.
  • Empirically supported interventions to help children and their families.

Learning Objectives

After this webinar participants will be able to:

  • Compare and contrast at least 2 changes in how relationships are built and maintained while using telehealth play therapy vs. In-person sessions.
  • Describe how attachment is accessed as a change agent in the therapeutic alliance during play therapy.
  • Identify and explore at least 2 play-based strategies for enhancing the therapeutic alliance within telehealth play therapy.
