In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many child therapists are shifting their clinical practice to online sessions. While there are many issues to consider when conducting online therapy, one of the most important is how to engage children and help them work through their treatment issues. This can be particularly challenging when therapist and child are in different physical locations and there is a screen separating them. This webinar outlines innovative techniques to engage children in online therapy.
You Will Learn:
- How to conduct an online intake meeting with caregivers
- Teletherapy techniques to build therapeutic rapport
- Teletherapy techniques to help children express feelings and learn effective ways to cope with the current crisis
This webcast is for mental health professionals who have been properly trained in providing therapy to children, and who are seeking innovative strategies to transition to online sessions.
