    Barbara, 

    All my clients are kids and teens. I have just started seeing them on telehealth this week due to COVID advisories.

    It's different! But going better than I thought. So far it's mostly kids showing me their toys and art or conversations with parents about how they can support their kids through their own self-care.

    I work with children as well, and am very curious about how/what others are doing. I have used more written "work sheets" than I would normally, for instance talking about "What's Your Stress" and what you can do about it. Also using alot of drawing, including making images as reminders for breathing techniques.  FYI, I heard about a webinar this Friday that may be of interest?

    I have done it with a few of my clients. It worked well for my 11 year old girls, they are pretty chatty and engaged. It was a lot more difficult with the 9 year old. We just kept his session short and I billed for 30 min.

     

    I wonder if that training has a replay!

    This Thriving at Home "Telehealth Play Therapy Activities for Licensed Therapists" has been a great resource for ideas with kids during this time.

    I think the Mary Alvord webinar can be viewed through this link:

    Thanks so much Mindy for the link. I also suggested to SH that they incorporate a white board into the teleplatform. Dr. Alvord demonstrated using this and it was a great interactive tool.
