Creative Family Therapy Techniques
This webinar is hosted by the Community Technical Assistance Center (CTAC) and later the Managed Care Technical Assistant Center (MCTAC)
Children are often excluded from family therapy because many practitioners are at a loss of how to effectively engage them. The use of creative activities in family therapy such as games, art, and storytelling, facilitates the participation of all family members. Play and expressive arts techniques, in particular, offer an advantage over traditional “talk therapy” because children are provided with a more accessible way to communicate with family members. Additionally, play and arts activities facilitate family relatedness and connection.
Through this fun and interactive webinar, participants will learn a number of innovative techniques to engage, assess, and treat families. The advantages of using play-based techniques with families will be outlined, and tips for overcoming challenges will be discussed. Videos of family therapy sessions will illustrate techniques.
A pre-requisite for participating in this webinar is basic family therapy training and experience.
