Play Therapy with Pre-Teens and Teens  (3 hour)

With their changing brains and hormones, finding ways to integrate play with pre-teens and teens can at times just feel completely “Awkward.” Do we talk? Do we play? Do I ask questions? What do I do? This three-hour talk will shed light on how to navigate the therapy landscape with our clients who are no longer children, but also not quite yet adults.

  1. Understand why it is important not to have a script for when to apply non-directive and directive play therapy interventions with pre-teens and teens;
  2. Understand the importance of assessing the pre-teen or teen’s emotional age in the play therapy process;
  3. Understand the most important goal when applying play therapy to your work with pre-teens and teens.
