Effective Use of Games in Child Therapy -  Therapy / Healthcare Training Seminar

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Discover how to Use Games as a Part of Child Therapy


Children often lack the verbal ability and insight to adequately discuss their difficulties and challenges. Many children don't know why they are in counseling and many others resent being forced to come in by their parents. This makes it necessary for child clinicians to constantly innovate and look for new ways to interact with their young clients. Games are a valuable therapeutic tool and have been in use in child therapy for decades. However, most training programs don't include comprehensive instruction on the use of games in child therapy. In addition, there are now hundreds of board games, card games, and books of games available to child clinicians. As a result it can be very difficult to know what games to select, how to use them, and how to implement a game once it has been selected.

This workshop will provide a comprehensive review of how and when to use games in child therapy and counseling. Participants will learn how to use games to engage their clients, reduce resistance, and foster a therapeutic environment. Participants will become familiar with categories of games and specific games so that they can better select games appropriate to their practice. The emphasis in this workshop is on having fun, playing games, and making the process therapeutic and enjoyable for our clients. By the end of this workshop participants will be able to use games and material that they already have on hand, and be able to select additional games for their practice from the hundreds that are available.
 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Learn how to use games to overcome resistance, increase insight, and teach practical skills
• Immediately begin using games and materials you have on hand to make therapy and counseling sessions more productive
• Examine how the use of games in child therapy makes therapy accessible and productive for children by overcoming and bypassing the weaknesses and deficits many of our clients have
• Describe how to use a variety of games to facilitate therapy, overcome resistance, foster emotional and social competence skills, and make sure clients have fun when they come to their session
• Discuss strategies for introducing and creating stories with our clients
• Identify and introduce games that are appropriate for your practice and clientele
• Discuss strategies for maintaining a therapeutic environment while playing games, and how to use games to advance our therapeutic goals
• Explore the use of popular, commercially available games, and games specifically created for therapy
