CE Event: Animations, PowerPoints, and Interactive Strategies for Play-Based Telehealth and On-Site Sessions
Featuring Ann Marie Ramos, LCSW, RPT-S
The advent of social distancing required clinicians who worked with families and children/young adolescents to quickly improvise when switching to a telehealth setting. Therapists had to either completely re-think or modify what they had been doing and what had been working on-site with little preparation, and few resources to guide them. This workshop will attempt to provide an additional resource for those looking for ideas to strengthen the telehealth process and in doing so find additional strategies they can bring to the office. In this webinar, participants will be able to see, through live demonstration, how sharing short animations, videos, and interactive power points as well as other collaborative activities can facilitate the goals of therapy. These activities work well in a telehealth setting but can also be brought on site. Examples of goals will come from the presenter’s own experience and will include emotional regulation, feelings expression, managing anxiety, improving self-esteem, and developing social skills. The types of interventions presented are designed for the less talkative, often distracted child, with low motivation for therapy. The ideas presented will often require the therapist to be able to share their computer screen and limited technical tips will be provided. It is hoped participants can use this workshop as a “jumping off point” to inspire them to create their own interventions. Online resources will be provided for further study.
