Lessons from the Playroom

Apr 27, 2021

Lisa is joined by special guest Jackie Flynn for a conversation on how to make online play therapy a more deeply connected experience for your child clients and their families.

They discuss:

...How you can offer authenticity and co-regulation to the session.

...How to create a sense of safety from the very beginning of the session and connect at deeper levels with your clients.

...How to make it a more meaningful experience for your clients (and yourself).

...And how you can use the fact that children are in their own home to your clinical advantage - the fact that the parents are available, children have access to their own toys, and in their own environment!!

You'll get a plethora of ideas, tips, and resources to help you deepen more into teletherapy .. and, if you’ve been struggling, become a bit more inspired and feel like a play therapist again. (We might suggest having something to take notes while you listen.)
