Learn from master child therapist Robin Walker why play is not a way to get children to talk about therapeutic issues, but is in fact the primary language of therapy. Play provides the building blocks for a strong therapeutic relationship, while simultaneously helping children develop communication skills, increase self-esteem, and stimulate development.
From activities that facilitate the integration of aggression to tips on modeling appropriate expression of difficult emotions, Walker skillfully shows therapists how to help children expand their emotional repertoire, no matter what the presenting problem. In numerous vignettes, he models how to develop a life-enhancing, caring, and authentic relationship with kids, one characterized by curiosity, interest, empathy, as well as a healthy dose of humor! Most importantly, he demonstrates how to create an environment in which each child who comes into your office can have what Walker calls a “genuine experience of self.”
Whether you currently work with kids and want to hone your skills, or are brand new to child therapy, this informative and inspiring video is sure to expand your capacity to truly make a difference in the lives of the children with whom you work.<
