Setting up and Providing Tele-Play Therapy - exploring the legal, ethical and practical issues

Live Online Course - Saturday 5th February 2022

Play Therapy Making the transition either from face to face Play Therapy to Tele-Play Therapy can seem daunting to begin with. These strange times have required us to think creatively about this and it now has become an additional Play Therapy approach.  This one day live online course aims to provide you with knowledge and the confidence to begin the process, and to provide participants with some practical tools to make the transition.

This course (qualified Play Therapists) will explore the following:

  • The legal issues relating to Tele-Play Therapy 
  • The Ethical issues relating to Tele-Play Therapy 
  • A step by step approach to delivering Tele-Play Therapy
  • Developing proceedures and policies for delivering Tele-Play Therapy 
  • Benefits and Pitsfalls of Tele-Play Therapy
  • The Different Considerations for effective Tele-Play Therapy
  • The Therapeutic process including potential themes 
  • The importance of Therapeutic Self-Care of the Play Therapist 

Participants will go away with a vast amount of knowledge and skills to set up and run their private therapy practice.
