Working with difficult to engage children can be frustrating and challenging, even for seasoned clinicians. The challenge of working with younger clients in therapy can be further compounded by their fear of entering therapy, their lack of control over the decision to attend therapy, and their developmental capacity which can make it difficult for them to respond to traditional talk-therapy. This workshop will outline innovative strategies for engaging hard-to-reach children.
By the end of the workshop you will be able to:
1) Describe the factors underlying therapeutic resistance.
2) Implement creative interventions to facilitate rapport-building with children.
3) Implement play-based techniques with clients who are reluctant to verbally articulate their thoughts and feelings.
