Description
Whether you are interested in building your own play therapy business, have a background in psychology, counselling or education and would like to work towards gaining a licence in this area, or are a parent whose child is about to undergo, or who already is undergoing play therapy, and you would like to understand it better, the Play Therapy Course is for you. Many people who are working in the field of mental health or who have received special training about dealing with children have researched extensively and discovered that development and learning are best brought about as a result of play. The purpose of play therapy is to help children who have some kind of social and emotional skills missing, learn the adaptive behaviours that are needed to survive socially in today's world. Furthermore, this therapy technique can also be used to provide children with insight about the problems that they are facing and help them in finding various solutions to these problems. Play therapy is also known to promote cognitive development within the minds of children. In most cases, it is hoped that children will, as a result of play therapy, learn the different ways in which they can communicate with other people and express their feelings. Furthermore, the therapy technique is also designed to help children in modifying or correcting their behaviour, learn various problem-solving skills that are essential at their stage of development and help them learn how they can and should relate to other people. To become a play therapist, you need to understand the benefits of its use over other types of therapies and how you can help children with their specific problems. We will show you how you can progress in a career in this area, and what you'll learn from this course. The Play Therapy Course is where you will learn all the types of play therapies that are used, such as sensory and embodiment play therapy, dramatic roleplaying, art and crafts, storytelling, sand-pits, and mosaics, and the techniques and applications of each. Also covered is information on how to set up a suitable environment for play therapy. Students will learn about the psychology behind self-esteem and self-esteem from a child's perspective. The course outlines how you can use play therapy to improve a child's self-esteem. Many of the clients receive will have suffered some sort of trauma. We explain how trauma works, the symptoms, and the consequences of going through trauma. You will then learn how play therapy can help a child overcome the obstacles presented by trauma, and enable students to understand and empathise with their clients. The Play Therapy Course guides learners through the explicit dos and don'ts of play therapy. This ensures that the children and their parents get the most out of each session and ensures that you, as the therapist, continue to hone your skills in this area and gain a good reputation, which in turn will help your business to flourish. We give you real-life case studies, from both the client's and therapist's points of view, to give concrete examples of the 'how' and 'why' play therapy works, as well as showcasing example methods. Finally, we will outline the next steps for you to take on your journey to becoming a professional play therapist.
