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.

About DVD/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. Each video workshop is 3 to 6 hours long, yet we’ve been able to keep the costs under $150. The “trade-off” for this is a slight decrease in video quality and rough cuts and transitions. Many of our videos are recordings of our live webinars and therefore provide an experience similar to the webinars without the ability to interact with the speaker.The videos are not glitzy production numbers, but viewers have consistently commented that the quality of information on them is top-notch.
