It’s all Fun and Games! How to Use Games Therapeutically in Play Therapy
In this engaging and interactive training, therapists will gain a greater knowledge of how to choose appropriate games and engage clients in ways that work towards achieving their therapeutic goals. Participants will learn how to determine whether games are appropriate for a particular child’s treatment. You will learn how games can be used to assess behavior, and how to make a game into therapeutic experience.
Participants will learn a large array of therapeutic benefits of games and a variety of new games to incorporate in their practice. The training will demonstrate how to use specific games for children with different common diagnoses. You will have the opportunity to learn, practice, and apply their new knowledge and skills with different games in the training. (Trainer, Batsheva Hartstein, LCSW-C, RPT)

Class 2 – Not Your Grandma’s Freud! A Fresh Look at Psychodynamic Theory and Practice
A psychodynamic approach to treatment has fallen out of favor with much of the field as ‘evidence based practices’ are touted as more effective, and quicker, and are pushed by insurance companies. But many clients do not seem to be helped by CBT and other such practices alone. An understanding of how modern psychodynamic therapy works will expand treatment options, dispel misconceptions, and increase our ability to help a wider spectrum of people.
This interactive training will help participants understand the evidence behind the effectiveness of psychodynamic treatment. Mental health professions will learn how psychodynamic theory has changed in recent years. Participants will examine some of the common current treatment strategies and will learn the benefits of a time-limited dynamic treatment approach. (Trainer, Erik Hadden, MA, LCPC, Vital Sources Psychological Services)

The Change Ethic!
Why does change seem so hard? What can we learn about change from alligators, elephants, and a Code of Ethics? One of the most basic ethical principles of the helping professions is that clinicians need to assist clients in realizing their capacity to change. While this ethical principle goes to the very core of practice, practitioners often find themselves at a loss when working with “resistant” clients.
This interactive training will examine the obligation to help clients change and teach effective methods to achieving this ethical obligation. (Trainer Jeffrey Davidson LCSW-C, LICSW)
