Workshops for Professionals
Our workshops are hands-on and practical, and provide a range of developmentally appropriate ideas for use in therapy with preschool and primary school children and their families. Both new and experienced therapists have enjoyed learning about our creative and engaging therapy activities. The number of participants in each workshop is limited, with a maximum of 30-35. Psychologists, school counsellors, occupational therapists, social workers, speech pathologists, family therapists, and other mental health clinicians have found our workshops helpful.
Creative Ways to Help Children Manage Emotions
Learn a range of practical ideas for helping children to understand and manage strong emotions such as anger, sadness and anxiety. This full-day workshop provides a grounding for less experienced therapists in working with children and their families. More experienced therapists will enjoy adding new, creative ideas and activities to their therapy toolbox. If you have never attended one of our workshops before, then this is the ideal workshop for you!
“The practical aspect was really high – so useful to come away with concrete ideas… This was one of the most engaging and useful workshops I’ve ever attended!” – Madeline Sibbing, Psychologist with 8 years’ experience in child work.
