Who is this online course for

This course is for therapists who work with children and families, including psychologists, social workers, counsellors, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and other mental health clinicians.

Therapists who enjoyed our Creative Ways to Help Children Manage Emotions online course will enjoy this one too!

If you are attending one of our workshops for the first time we suggest you consider completing that course first. Both workshops include different therapeutic activities: The Creative Ways to Help Children Manage Emotions course has ideas that are useful for helping children with worry, anger and sadness, while Playful, Practical and Purposeful Approaches to Childhood Anxiety focuses on helping children with worries and fears.

Very engaging with lots of creative, fun ideas to use with children. I enjoyed the structure and short clips to demonstrate each concept/exercise. The progress bar was helpful to know about your progression through the course.

Jane, Psychologist

Loved it - super practical and informative.
I loved the self pace aspect of the course - to complete small portions enabling reflection on ideas ... it was very practical, easy to understand and listen to

Donna, Occupational Therapist

Fantastic - as someone based in a rural/regional area it is great to be able to access the course and materials online. As a working mother it is also fantastic to be able to move through the course at my own pace! I will definitely recommend Creative Child Therapy Workshops to my colleagues

Andrea, Social Worker

I have completed the other CCTW online courses and yet again, this was highly relevant, practical and engaging in so many ways! I always come away with concrete takeaways and new ways that I can support young people and their families to understand concepts in a way which is accessible and fun!... Thank you so much for all the time, energy and wisdom you have shared, Fiona and Suzanne! I can't wait to put some of these new activities into practice!
