Counseling & Kids (Webinar)
Counseling children are both rewarding and fun. It requires a set of counseling skills specific to the population. Knowing what tools to use and when to use them creates a counseling environment fit for all families.
Working with children, from preschool through junior high, can cause anxiety and concern for some therapists. This course provides the necessary information and techniques to use with young children and their families.
Through this course, therapists will learn and develop proper skills when working with children. Therapists will be provided with hands-on learning exercises that will build confidence and the know-how for this population.
Speaker: Anne Shragal, MA, LCPC, PEL-SC
Anne Shragal is owner and therapist at Breeze Counseling. Anne Shragal is a Pediatric Counselor, specializing in life adjustments. She works with toddlers through young adult clients and their families. Anne believes that counseling is like a puzzle and it is her job to help put the puzzle pieces together.
Anne Shragal like to use creative arts in the session to help the process. She believes that it may be difficult for younger children to express their concerns, and therefore, she uses a variety of creative techniques to help move the counseling process along. Anne also likes to involve the parents, providing parenting skills and client updates throughout the treatment. She values the team approach, understanding the best treatment is help from a variety of people within the child’s life: parents, teachers, school staff, and counselor.
