Play Therapy For Children with ADHD Video and Manual Training
Video and Manual Training
This Video and Manual training was originally created in 1999 by Dr. Heidi G. Kaduson. The manual was updated in 2017.
One of the most common referrals tends to be children with ADHD. The challenge of psychological treatment is minimized through play therapy. Not only do the children love to come to their sessions, but the parents also learn how to overdose the positive and enjoy their children more. This video will teach the viewers about the characteristics of play therapy, and how the therapeutic powers of play can aide in the treatment of children with ADHD through techniques and games created for this population. In addition, parent training will be discussed so that the therapist can help in a multi-modal approach to this disorder. Techniques will be taught and client presentations will be discussed and viewed.
- Describe the three components of ADHD
- Identify play therapy assessment strategies for children with ADHD
- Explain how the therapeutic powers of play can aide the treatment of ADHD.
- Identify play therapy treatment goals.
- Discuss why play therapy is the treatment of choice along with behavioral methods for parents.
About Video Quality Control. . .
When first deciding to make these video workshops, we had a decision to make: produce them professionally at a very high cost or produce them ourselves at lower cost. Because our goal was to disseminate as much play therapy information as possible to mental health professionals with limited budgets, we decided on the latter. This video workshop is 4 hours long, yet we’ve been able to keep the costs under $100. The “trade-off” for this is a slight decrease in video quality and rough cuts and transitions. Viewers have consistently commented that the quality of information on them is top-notch.
