PLAY THERAPY BASED APPLICATIONS FOR TRAUMA-FOCUSED CBT WITH CHILDREN
Friday August 26, 2016 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Preferred Behavioral Health Training Center
725 Airport Road, Suite B1, in Lakewood, NJ 08701
Trauma-Focused CBT is the most often used empirically-based (and SAMSHA recommended) trauma treatment approach. However, younger children, especially under the age of 8, often need a more playful and play-based approach to any CBT approach due to their developmental limitations.
This didactic and experiential workshop will offer child/play therapists an overview of how to incorporate play therapy-based techniques into Trauma Focused-CBT treatment with children making it a more play therapy-based approach. Advanced-level issues and difficulties in using TF-CBT with children will also be addressed.
