Working with the Gifted Child in Play Therapy – Live Web-Based Workshop
What does it mean to be gifted? Being gifted is more than being smart and getting good grades and it does not always seem like a “gift”. In this play therapy workshop, participants will identify what it means to be considered gifted, common presenting issues of gifted children, special concerns with gifted children, and identify and demonstrate play therapy approaches and techniques for working with gifted children in a play therapy, school, and clinical setting.
- Participants of this workshop will examine through a play therapy lens the characteristics of gifted children and definitions of giftedness at the Federal and State level.
- Participants of this workshop will examine the common presenting problems of gifted children in the classroom, home and play therapy setting and demonstrate strategies of educating and supporting their parents.
- Participants of this workshop will analyze and demonstrate 6-8 play therapy approaches and techniques for working with gifted children.
