Course Description:
Note: This course also offers 1 CE Hour Non-contact Association for Play Therapy (APT) credit. See below for full details.This workshop is Masterclass 1 of 4. Each class can be taken as a standalone and optimally as part of the complete series. Click here for the full series bundle.

About this class:
Mental health practitioners are always seeking new and innovative ideas to add to their therapeutic repertoire. In this must-see webinar, learn from four internationally recognized therapists as they share their favorite play and expressive arts techniques. 

Play and expressive arts techniques provide an effective means for therapeutic work with children who, by virtue of their developmental needs or their treatment issues, are difficult to engage in traditional "talking" therapy. Play and expressive arts techniques facilitate physical, cognitive, emotional, and social growth. 

Children and teens are often reluctant to verbally express their thoughts and feelings, or to address the issues that brought them to therapy. Play and expressive arts techniques can be used creatively to facilitate open communication, and to help clients effectively work through their treatment goals. 

This Masterclass will provide a brief theoretical overview of Prescriptive Play Therapy. Each guest speaker will present one of their most effective therapeutic techniques, and will discuss how it fits within the empirically supported theoretical framework.

Malgosia Cegielski Ph.D.

As a clinical psychologist and Registered Play Therapist I have had decades of training and taken countless seminars. Lynn Louise Wonders' 20 Play Therapy Interventions for Anxiety with Older Children was a delightful surprise. Her enthusiasm and deep understanding of what it takes to engage this sometimes difficult age group by using creative and engaging strategies is the best I have ever seen. The strategies were indeed creative yet presented with succinct clarity and straightforward instructions. Sometimes these seminars can be tedious at the end of which one wonders what of this will I actually use, but every strategy she taught made intuitive sense for the play therapy process and was easy to grasp. I eager to try them. At the end, she presents several short well done psycho-educational videos that could be used directly with our clients and sprinkles the entire presentation with resources. Thank-you for this engaging educational experience .

I loved all the resources shared, and never felt I was sitting through a 'sales pitch'! It is ever so important to have a variety of resources available - many of the presenters happily shared options! There were a few presenters who simply 'read' their power point - (not as engaging!); and one or two who spoke WAY too fast for anyone who was taking notes (good thing there is access to the recording!). Overall, however - the "learning" was fun, the information relevant (& current) and the variety of presenters and backgrounds & theory bases made for an excellent presentation! ...AND a fun-filled way to start my day!

"It's a Beautiful Day in the Playborhood" exceeded my expectations. I found it to be quite inspirational being introduced to the creative and practical therapeutic techniques that could be implemented immediately in my practice, as well as broadening my perspective on alternative approaches that I have not been exposed to before. Therefore, the wonderful references and resources that were provided is an excellent starting point to read up on these further. In addition to this, having presenters from all over the globe was a wonderful opportunity to be exposed to a broader therapeutic community. A webinar well worth attending.

The course can be useful to daycare providers, foster care parents and anyone in a caregiver role. What I likes the most s was how to predict good behavior before it begins. To indirectly tell a child the behavior you want them to do. And also the empowering piece by saying “oh you know how to make a plan to get the game.”

A very high level of competence and command over a very large breadth and depth of material, that's not at all strictly "textbook" knowledge, or too "clinical." Lots of grounded, real-world application and examples, along with plenty of insights, implications, and tips, that are clearly from actual experience, and typically not found in the textbooks or academic settings.

I'm happy I attended the course. I learned a lot of tools and innovative resources to engage children online. It is hard to plan and try to retain the focus of children through a monitor, but the techniques and ideas provided are fun, and children love fun. If they do not feel like it is a session or exercise, they will look forward to meeting the counselor weekly or during the scheduled time. The facilitator did a great job giving examples and including attendees to participate. Although I was in the crowd, she made me feel like a happy kid in the session. She does an amazing job with her tone, occasional smiles and making the attendees feel welcome. I will use some of what I learned today and apply it to my practice.
