Turn Awkward Into Authentic!

Only mental health practitioners can receive CE credit for this course.

From twelve-year-olds to seniors in high school, adolescence is a changing time. This makes play therapy a challenge: how do you heal those maneuvering the middle ground between childhood and adulthood? Join us on this journey as we explore when to apply directive and non-directive play, how to work with older children, and how to set goals for this population.

Pre-teens and Teens in Play Therapy Objectives:

  • Understand why it is important not to have a script for when to apply directive and non-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
