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.
- 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;
- Understand the importance of assessing the pre-teen or teen’s emotional age in the play therapy process;
- Understand the most important goal when applying play therapy to your work with pre-teens and teens.
