Ethics Workshop Overview:

Ethics and the W’s of Touch in Play: Who, What, Why, When and Where?

Humans need to touch to survive. Research has shown that less touch as a child leads to greater violence. Touch promotes trust between individuals, can increase learning engagement, and promotes overall wellbeing. However, education, training, and workplace policies dictate the importance of boundaries. Sometimes it is difficult to know what is okay and what is not okay. This training will outline the black, white, and gray areas of touch in play therapy as well as how therapists can protect themselves when utilizing touch in play therapy sessions. NOTE: This program offers 1.00 contact hour. Participants are responsible for checking with their state regulatory board to determine if the program meets regulations for "ethics" hours.
