Engaging the Resistant Child in Play Therapy

Every therapist has been there – in a session with a child who doesn’t want to come in the room, a child who doesn’t want to do the task, a child who only wants to avoid the issue.  This one-hour pre-recorded webinar from the Lessons from the Playroom Webinar Series explores what to do when a child client’s language and behavior say “no.”  Join us as we explore resistance, with a focus on differentiating resistance from avoidance and differentiating resistance from the dorsal collapse in the nervous system. Emotional flooding is explored as well.

Engaging the Resistant Child in Play Therapy Objectives:
  • Understand what resistance is in the playroom
  • Understand other possibilities for what could be going on with the child when resistance shows up in the session
  • Learn how to engage the resistant child in play therapy
