Level Up: Using Video Games to Connect with your Clients

Due to COVID-19 health concerns, this one-time online event has been approved by APT for 3 CONTACT CE HOURS.

Building a rapport with young clients can be a struggle in the new world of pandemics, virtual learning, and working from home. By incorporating video games into our interventions, we are able to enter a world that builds on themes we already use in our practice. This workshop will explore possible ways to utilize video gaming as a play therapy technique in a virtual environment.

This workshop aims to give you new ideas on how to utilize videos games as a way to connect, communicate, and create an environment that promotes more positive emotions, stress management, and resiliency.

Through this program participants will be able to:

  • Describe how to use video games to build rapport with play therapy clients
  • Create play therapy intervention that incorporates video games
  • Discuss potential ethical concerns regarding the use of video games
  • Demonstrate how to use video games to facilitate powers of play & communication
  • Create an environment for play therapy clients
  • And much more!
