Children who have been sexually traumatized are often in need of our clinical services. In this webinar, participants will learn about sexual development in children, the behavioural, social, emotional and psychological markers of sexual trauma in the therapeutic play room, and the special issues these children present in play therapy, including dealing with powerful impacts of countertransference and setting limits.
By the end of the webinar you will be able to:
1) Identify sexualized play in play therapy,
2) Set appropriate limits,
3) Utilise skills to alleviate issues of countertransference.
