About the Presentation

Bring your own lunch and get comfy, while joining us for an online presentation by Dr. Tim Baima.

 The goal of this presentation is for participants to understand the benefit of using play therapy with families, acquire ideas for family play interventions, and learn resources for further training.

This interactive workshop introduces family play interventions counselors can quickly learn regardless of their level of experience with families or play therapy. The family play interventions presented are especially useful in engaging whole families in the early stages of treatment, and are particularly effective in assessing and treating attachment issues. The presenter uses these interventions regularly with families who have children ranging in ages from 5 to 45 (families with adult children). He also teaches these interventions to students and supervisees who have been able to confidently and effectively implement them in their first year of experience.   

Learning Objectives

1.  Participants will be able to identify at least 3 reasons to use family play therapy.
2.  Participants will recognize the potential of family play therapy to heal relational bonds.
3.  Participants will become familiar with at least 2 family play interventions.
