Play Therapy With Adolescents
Adolescents are often resistant, hostile, moody, and difficult, but they can also be fascinating, creative, spontaneous, and passionate. How do mental health professionals get past the facade? Play Therapy with Adolescents is the first book to offer a complete variety of play therapy approaches specifically geared toward adolescents. The chapters, written by experts in the field, offer readers entry into the world of adolescents, showing how to make connections and alliances.

Please join us in this 9 unit course.

 
This course consists of a post-test based upon reading the text. There is no online material to read. After you pass the post-test, you may print out your own certificate.

"When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years."
~Mark Twain, "Old Times on the Mississippi" Atlantic Monthly, 1874

 

 

"Teenagers complain there's nothing to do, then stay out all night doing it." ~Bob Phillips

Loretta Gallo-Lopez merges her experience as a play therapist and board-certified drama therapist and trainer in her psychotherapy practice in Tampa, Florida. She is a former adjunct professor in the Drama Therapy program at New York University. She has authored several chapters on play and drama therapy and has presented trainings nationally on topics related to sexual abuse and creative approaches to therapy with children, adolescents, and families.

"I work with children, adolescents and families with a wide range of issues and problems. A specific area of focus is sexual abuse including work with child and adolescent survivors of sexual abuse, children under 12 years of age with sexual behavior problems, adolescents who have sexually offended and developmentally disabled youth and young adults with sexual behavior problems. I also work with children and adolescents diagnosed with a variety of anxiety and mood disorders including generalized anxiety, social phobia, major depression and bipolar disorder. My creative approach to treatment relies heavily on drama therapy, but may also include the use of play therapy, art and other creative interventions as well as traditional psychotherapy when appropriate. My welcoming office is filled with plants, props and toys and looks out onto a beautiful lake and wooded area."
