This dynamic training explores the transformative power of creative techniques in child-focused family therapy. By providing a medium for all family members to participate, these innovative approaches foster positive interactions and promote healing within the family unit. The presenter will introduce a range of engaging, assessment, and treatment techniques designed to address diverse family challenges. From games and puppetry to psychodrama, phototherapy, and storytelling, participants will learn to integrate these creative interventions seamlessly into their practice, including strategies for meaningful session closures.

This training is for both novice and experienced family therapists seeking to expand their therapeutic toolkit with fresh, innovative approaches. Join us to enhance your skills in engaging families, conducting assessments, and implementing creative interventions that resonate with clients of all ages. This training will equip you with a versatile set of techniques to enliven your family therapy sessions and promote lasting positive change.

This webinar is module 4 of our Innovations in child and family therapy certificate program; however, you can also register for it as a stand alone training to enhance your therapeutic skills.
