What you need to know to help children and yourself through different legal situations!

This 14 CEU, 2 day conference will help provide critical information of what therapists and other mandated reporters will need to know to best help their clients and themselves in the judicial and social service system. Participates will obtain a better understanding of the mandating reporting process and learn best questions to ask after a client has disclosed. Play therapy techniques will be taught such as: helping your client handle the stress and trauma that these abuses produce and helping children feel safe to discuss their trauma. Participants will learn how to best prepare yourself and your clients for testifying will be covered. A mock court will be held with a panel of professional court personnel for questions and insight.
