The NYMHCA Learning Institute Presents: Achieving Social Justice, Empowering Young Black & Brown Minds

Presenter: Sonia Hinds, APRN, PMH-BC, RPT-S 

Children, Black and Brown, in our society are faced with racism daily, resulting in fear, anxiety, and even Race-Based Trauma. As advocates for children, therapists utilizing play therapy need to be well informed about racism, social injustice and the impact these have on the lives of the children served. Directive and non-directive play therapy approaches will be presented to enable therapists to connect with children, impart empathy, healing, and empowerment. Strategies include bibliotherapy, use of art, music and play.

The NYMHCA Learning Institute Presents: Improv for Building Counseling Relationship - A Zoom presentation.

Presenter: Joan Ingalls, LMHC, Ed.D., MA & Jennifer Bullock, LCS

The Counseling relationship isn't just a vehicle for problem-solving or an empathic emotional environment for sharing. Emerging research and practice modalities point to how the activity of building that relationship can support emotional growth and make problems vanish, for it is our emotional underdevelopment that produces many problems. 

In this experiential workshop, attendees play improv theater games and participate in role-plays. We explore how improv helps us be more present - better listeners and responders - as we build our relationships. Participants gain skills for continuously building the counseling relationship throughout the course of therapy.

Available CEUs: 2

Cost for CEUs:
NYMHCA member: $15/CEU
     Non-NYMHCA member: $20/CEU
