Recently Dr. Jessica Stone presented a one hour live class called Digital Play Therapy Tips and Techniques as part of the 2020 Play Therapy Mini Master Class Series.
When the COVID19 pandemic hit and therapists were left scrambling to suddenly adapt ways to provide continuity of care for clients, there became a rise in both need and interest for training and support with regard to digital tips and techniques for providing play therapy services. Fortunately, Dr. Jessica Stone has been carving a clear path within the play therapy field for years showing how clinicians can indeed use digital means for engaging clients both in the play room and through online services.
We are most fortunate to have her leadership at a time we all need training and support on the topic of digital play therapy services. I am most excited she agreed to be a part of the 2020 Play Therapy Mini Master Class Series and you are going to want to register to get a recorded copy of this wonderful one hour class!
