The Basics of Therapeutic Conversations with Children: How to work with children when you’re not a child therapist - Live Webinar

Pamela K. King, MS., LMFT.,
presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

9:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Guest Facilitator: Pamela K. King, MS., LMFT.,

Ms. King is an enthusiastic and experienced solution focused practitioner, international speaker, author and trainer with a private practice in Logan, UT. She has designed and implemented innovative play therapy treatment programs that incorporate solution-focused brief therapy with children and families.

This training is suitable for:

Mental Health Professionals: Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Psychologists, Social Workers

Medical Professionals: Family Doctors, Psychiatrists Nurses, Paeditricians

Direct Service Workers: Drop in Workers, Shelter and Hostel Workers, Child and Youth Workers, Youth Justice Workers

Description: Therapy too often expects children to engage in adult conversation or ignores children because they are developmentally incapable of adult conversation. But what exactly do you do with children? Like many clinicians, when I stepped out of graduate school, I felt under-trained in working with children. This interactive, online training will give clinicians hands-on tools for working with children. Through simple play activities and discovery, attendees will learn to use toys and activities as conversational tools to not only increase client engagement, but to design the ideal future and move towards it. Attendees will leave with step-by-step tools and strategies for effective therapeutic outcomes with children and families, understand key child development factors, and learn strategies for engaging parents. Specific case examples of childhood anxiety, disobedience, aggressive behavior, school problems, and family disruption will be addressed in the course.

Learning Objectives:

* Participant will be able to identify and will practice 5 basic communication skills

* Participants will understand key child development factors

* Participants will practice simple therapeutic play activities

* Participants will acquire strategies for engaging parents
