Do you ever get stuck with your child clients? Do you wonder what to do for the whole hour? Do you wonder how to build a rational treatment plan with an irrational child? These questions and more will be answered in this fun and informative half-day. Children learn best not from being told what to do, but from having experiences in which they learn for themselves. Arts, crafts, games and relationship are the tools of the child therapist, and this workshop will introduce you to enough of these to help children learn about themselves for months! This is a real "How-To" day.
