THREE WEEK COURSE FOR PROFESSIONALS OFFERED AT THE WHITE INSTITUTE

This course will discuss therapeutic techniques of working with children ages 3 to 6, their parents and teachers.  The instructor will also provide suggestions on setting up a play/office space, important supplies, initial sessions with parents and the child, and interfacing with schools.  While this is not a course on theory, we will touch on the importance of the understanding the child's development in all areas of functioning and family dynamics, which are essential in treating a child.

 

This course is intended for professionals who are interested in expanding their knowledge and understanding of this area, as well as those already working with working with young children and family members.
