Have you given up on providing play therapy online? Since 2020 more therapists are providing therapy via telehealth – but many providers draw the line at engaging with children at a distance. We believe that the reluctance to provide play therapy via telehealth is due to a lack of confidence, lack of skills and interventions that are doable online. This workshop will cover best practices for engaging with children via telehealth, but also provide the opportunity to experience play therapy interventions while online. We will have breakout discussions regarding clinical challenges and experiences providing play therapy post-COVID. We will also present a toolbox of ideas for working with children online that will help make therapy more fun and playful for both our clients and for us as therapists!

Learning Objectives: Participants will understand the ethical standards that are unique to providing play therapy services online. Participants will be able to identify several ideas to keep play therapy interactive and experiential even when at a distance. Participants will be able to describe clinical best practices when providing play therapy via telehealth.

Telehealth Supervision: Ethics and Best Practices

Virtual Training September 20th, 2024 9:00 am-12:00 pm

Counselors, therapists, social workers, play therapists all require supervision in graduate school and for requirements for licensure or credentialing. Prior to COVID most supervision for counseling was in person without question. Following the pandemic most supervisees are expecting that supervision could easily be offered online for convenience. This workshop will discuss the best practices of online supervision and how telehealth supervision may prove to be superior to in person supervision. The key to great supervision is the focus on the supervisory alliance and the willingness to provide experiential activities during supervision.

Learning Objectives: Participants will take away tips to ensure that their use of technology in clinical supervision is ethically sound. Participants will be able to identify some of the opportunities and some of the challenges that come from offering MFT, LPC, or RPT supervision online. Participants will be able to apply best practices when providing supervision via telehealth in challenging situations.

    • Dear Parent/Guardian:

      Your student has been referred to the School Counseling Telehealth Program with Building Blocks Family Counseling. This is a collaboration between the Effingham School System and Building Blocks Family Counseling- a mental health private practice with locations in Savannah, Pooler, and Rincon.

      How does it work?

      A referral will be sent from your student’s school counselor to Building Blocks. You will receive a call from our office to set up an appointment, get insurance information, complete paperwork, etc. An online intake appointment will be scheduled for your student during the school day (based on times provided by the school counselor). An online intake appointment will also be scheduled between your student’s therapist and yourself to gather information regarding your student. The Therapist will schedule routine parent/guardian check-ins with you and family sessions as needed. Sessions with students will generally be weekly (during school hours) and last for 30-45 minutes. Parent/Guardian sessions can be held during or after school hours and last for 45-50 minutes.

      Paperwork Needed

      In order to provide these services we need the following paperwork completed for each student. A new client intake packet, child/adolescent questionnaire, and a release of information for the school counselor. We will be coordinating sessions with your student through the school counselors at their school so it is important we have the release of information completed.

      Appointments

      Appointment reminders via email, text, and phone will be sent the day before any scheduled appointments. Please make sure we have the best contact information on file so you will receive all of the reminders.

      If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to address these with your therapist. If you feel like your student no longer needs services, please also communicate this with your therapist.
