The first meeting of my new Play Therapy Virtual Book Club was a hit. We had a fantastic group of clinicians discuss Virginia Axline’s classic book, Dibs: In Search of Self. If you missed it, the recorded version of this course is available for non-contact hour credit here.
(And, the audio of the discussion is available as a free preview so you can see what it was like before you decide to purchase the course).
You can purchase the August Selection anywhere you like, but consider, Self Esteem Shop because you can use code JT12302017 to save 20% of your purchase.
This is a great exploration of play therapy interventions that use touch. And, it’s perfect for discussion because each chapter is a case study of different techniques. So, you can actually read it in any order or jsut read parts of it and still benefit from this discussion.
And if you’re a fan of Dr. Courtney, you will be pleased to listen to her presentation in the Play Therapy Summit starting August 25th!
The discussion takes place through Zoom Meeting on August 24th at 2pm CST. Not sure what time that is where you are? Use this easy time zone converter.
