Trauma-Informed Virtual Sandtray Therapy with Children and Youth

Join us for a Live Webinar on November 19, 2021 from 1-2:30 pm EST
1.5 CE Credits available for behavioral health clinicians
1 CE Credit available for Play Therapists

The goal of this training is for participants to integrate virtual sandplay or sandtray therapy as a trauma-informed modality for intervention, in the continuum of care, when working with children, youth, and families who have experienced trauma. This includes a sequence of components that: (1) follows the tri-phasic model of trauma recovery (Herman, 1992); (2) underscores the neurobiology of trauma; and (3) complements current evidence based approaches in the field of trauma. The client’s engagement in virtual sandplay or sandtray therapy and/or the metaphorical use of sandtray materials/miniatures will be demonstrated through case examples. The training will also integrate application of these techniques to Black,Indigenous, and People of Color(BIPOC) and informed byneurosequential models of working withtraumatized children, youth, and theirfamilies.

I took the Board Certified-TeleMental Health Provider Training Certification Course in 2018, I feel so lucky to have found the TeleHealth Certification Institute. It's a top notch training center which has continued to provide me with tools and the knowledge to grow my private teletherapy practice. I recently participated in the TeleMental Health Preparedness Summit 2020 and was definitely not disappointed. The excitement and enthusiasm from the participants and TeleHealth Certification Institute staff is contagious. I've been inspired, since, to look into taking more courses, and joined their FaceBook group. I will likely join their consultation group in the near future. I don't believe there is another training institute out there that is as good as this one for everything telebehavioral health. Thank you Ray! You are a visionary!
