Description of the teaching methods to be used:
Each session includes a lecture portion, case presentations, and a question/answer discussion. In addition, role-play is used to demonstrate clinical techniques. Participants break into small groups during the training process in order to practice the techniques. During the art and play therapy session (Session 3), participants use mediums such as crayon, paint, or colored pencils and engage in experiential drawing activities. Participants receive printed power point slides for each portion of the training. They also receive handouts of relevant resources.
