Live Online Webinar

Description and Schedule

This course is a live, interactive webinar held on Friday, November 10, from 12-5pm Eastern Standard Time.

Registration closes at midnight (EST) the day before the event

Telehealth is here to stay, as it offers accessibility and flexibility beyond what is possible in in-person sessions. As research has expanded around the efficacy of telehealth with therapy clients of all ages, we know this is a viable alternative to children, teens, and families who need mental health services but are unable or prefer not to come to an office in person. When it comes to play-based interventions, how would you rate your skills in a telehealth session?

This program is for therapists, counselors, clinical social workers, psychologists, family therapists, play therapists, and any mental health provider who engages in tele-therapy with children. This is an intermediate to advanced course, so come with background knowledge in play interventions as well as an understanding of the ethical, legal, and logistical challenges that we face in a telehealth session. This program will expand your knowledge of these issues and give you concrete, specific interventions that you can implement in your telehealth sessions.

By the time you finish this course, you will be armed with a myriad of play-based interventions that can be done in a telehealth session. Gain the knowledge and skills to determine when a client is right for play-based tele-therapy, what type of play is the best fit for them, and what specific interventions you can use in any session with any client. Learn about physical play in online sessions, online play platforms that enhance your sessions, and how to make any play-based activity therapeutic.
