We are two months into the pandemic and using play and play therapy techniques to connect with our child clients through telehealth. In this webinar, we'll discuss some of the lessons we have learned organically from our child clients about how play therapists and other professional helpers can establish effective therapeutic connections using a play therapy foundation and telehealth mediums. We share ideas we have, what has and has NOT worked, and some surprises we have encountered along the way.
- Participants will be able to identify a minimum of three challenges of providing Play Therapy using a telehealth medium.
- Participants will learn at least two ways of interacting with children using Play Therapy via a telehealth medium.
