Helping Children Manage Emotions

Creative Ways to Help Children Manage Emotions:

A Practical Workshop for Therapists 

Learn what is different about child work, how to adapt therapy for different age groups, and how to work effectively with children and families.  Gain practical skills and develop a repertoire of therapeutic activities in this hands-on workshop.  The day provides a solid grounding in child work and is particularly useful for therapists who are new to the area.  More experienced clinicians have also enjoyed the practical focus of the workshop and the opportunity to learn new activities to integrate into their work.
