Description

  • Skills for working with autism, attachment, aggression, ADHD, physical & sexual abuse
  • Play therapy techniques to help kids establish healthy boundaries
  • Professional and legal boundaries around safe physical contact in therapy
  • Touch best-practice guidelines

Touch in therapy with children has long been a taboo topic and a hotbed of controversy!

We, as practitioners and educators, are challenged daily with ethical and clinical/ educational dilemmas related to touch from a child’s request for a hug, to a child inappropriately touching, to physical acts of aggression.

Join Janet Courtney, PhD, LCSW, RPT and leading expert in the field of touch, in this ground-breaking workshop. You will learn the current research related to the neurobiology of touch and attachment, plus the varied mediating factors that impact child initiated verses practitioner/educator initiated touch.

Discover varied touch-informed play therapy approaches that ethically intervene with child problems and diagnoses related to trauma, sexual and physical abuse, domestic violence, ADHD, anxiety, and attachment.

You’ll walk away with new interventions to successfully manage in-the-moment challenging touch behaviors, as well as play therapy-based techniques to help kids and teens establish healthy touch boundaries. Increase your professional awareness and competency through lab activities, and clinical and ethical touch guidelines to immediately lower concerns of liability.
