I have found this course very accessible and practical which has been great – I have a lot of ideas/activities I am looking forward to putting into practice with clients.
Fantastic. I could do it at my own pace and repeat parts I wanted to clarify my thinking about. It was really pleasing to realise that as an OT, not a psychologist, that a lot of activities I’m already using could be extended or used in a different way to help children work though some of their tricky feelings, whilst still feeling comfortable that I’m staying within the bounds of my expertise.
Amazing. The activities and ideas are practical and very easy to apply….I feel I have done the best course. I have already started applying many ideas with the children I work with and excited to apply more.
It was helpful to see the activities from the book used in vivo. Online was a helpful way of completing some learning in my own time
I found this course highly enjoyable, practical and relevant, with so many good takeaways to apply to my work with children, families and schools!
I highly recommend this course to get the creativity of clinicians new to working with younger children flowing!
“The program was positive and fun. I felt I learnt a lot, inspired my creativity, and I can’t wait to trial the ideas. The videos helped to take the ideas off the page and give me confidence to try them. The program had a good mix of theory and practical activities. The interface was incredibly easy to use and navigate.”
“The course was incredibly insightful and helpful as an experienced Psychologist who is new to working with children. The theoretical background provided about the way in which children learn was really helpful to highlight how therapeutic play can be/is, especially coming from working with adults where I have a strong cognitive focus.”
“It was fabulous being able to do it at my own pace and to fit it in around work hours. I really enjoyed the videos – especially when there were children or families involved to act out the activities… The course gave me so much inspiration and so many ideas. I feel re-energised in my profession!”
“The authors of this book, both clinical psychologists, have harnessed children’s love of play to provide an invaluable therapeutic resource for clinicians. The outcome is a user-friendly guide to a host of developmentally appropriate creative and, importantly, fun activities to assist with the therapeutic process in children with social, emotional and behavioural problems….This is an engaging resource based on solid evidence and clinical acumen by two experienced clinical psychologists and, while it is a wonderful addition to child psychology, it will also appeal to and enhance the therapeutic practice in a range of professionals working with children.”
