COVID has launched many play therapy practices into using Teleplay as a way of continuing sessions with children and their parents. This training will cover interventions to use in Teleplay including: Filial Play Therapy, Child Centered Play Therapy, Adlerian Play Therapy, and Family Play Therapy. Play therapy bibliotherapy resources, self-regulation techniques, and art interventions are also included for use individually with children or with their families. The goal of this training is to provide the play therapist with many intervention options to choose from as they show flexibility in moving from non-direct to direct interventions throughout a Teleplay session.

Telehealth has become the “new normal” as therapists have had to find creative ways to work with their clients through a screen. Although some clinicians are seeing children in person, having the tools to provide creative, therapeutic experiences and develop deep connections with your clients are important. This training will provide participants with a variety of interventions and skills to give participants the confidence to work with children and teens playfully. Through the screen, you will learn how to form healthy attachments, attunement, and regulation with your clients.

Through tele-play therapy, children learn how to interact with the world around them, communicate with others, problem-solve, discover emotions and empathy, gain resilience.

1. Compose ways to explain telehealth to parents and how to prepare for play therapy sessions.

2. Determine how the therapeutic powers of play attribute to effectiveness of play therapy interventions.

3. Design ways play therapy techniques, such as hide and seek, can be used to form healthy attachments with the family in a tele-play therapy setting.

4. Develop the skills needed to teach parents and caregivers how to play with their child and how to make it a part of their daily play therapy routine.

5. Demonstrate the three stands of the Nurtured Heart Approach® and the power of resetting for clinicians and clients.

6. Apply bibliotherapy and storytelling to offer a safe psychological distance from problems and to how it can be used as a teaching tool to explain current events.
