When children enter therapy because they have experienced a death of a loved one, they are at a very vulnerable time in their lives. They are often anxious about the therapeutic process and reluctant to talk directly about painful feelings. Activities that are creative and play-based can engage children and help them to express their thoughts and feelings. This webinar will present creative interventions for use with bereaved children ages 4-12. Activities will be presented for use in individual and group counselling. Participants will come away with many new and innovative techniques.
What can participants expect to have learned after attending this webinar:
- Identify key risk factors for bereaved children
- Assess bereaved children based on innovative, play-based model.
- Utilise at least five treatment techniques with bereaved children.
