Child-Centered Documentation: Treatment Planning and Assessing Progress

Child-Centered Documentation is a unique framework that allows Child-Centered Play Therapists to quantify symptoms for managed care requirements, while staying true to the theoretical underpinnings of Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) theory.

Implementing the Child-Centered Documentation framework will:

  • Increase your understanding of progress observed in CCPT sessions
  • Provide you the language to communicate to parents and other providers
  • Allow you to make clear and meaningful treatment plans and clinical documentation.

This training is both theoretical and practical and will include a toolkit of documentation resources that will help you build Child-Centered Documentation Treatment Plans and Progress Notes.

Description

Psychotherapy continues to move towards an “outcome-focused” environment, making it difficult for play therapists to stay Child-Centered and trust the process. Child-Centered Play Therapists (CCPT) find themselves pressured to be outcome-focused and “do” more to “fix” the symptoms, even when it is counter to the CCPT theoretical orientation. The Child-Centered approach states, “when you focus on the symptom you lose sight of the child,” which is in direct conflict with symptom-focused goals often required by managed care and other providers (Landreth).

Child-Centered Documentation is a unique framework that allows Child-Centered Play Therapists to quantify symptoms for managed care requirements while staying true to the theoretical underpinnings of Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT) theory.

Implementing the Child-Centered Documentation framework will:

  • Increase your understanding of progress observed in CCPT sessions
  • Provide you the language to communicate to parents and other providers
  • Allow you to make clear and meaningful treatment plans and clinical documentation.

Child-Centered Documentation: Treatment Planning and Assessing Progress is essential training for those practicing CCPT to learn a theoretical model and application for treatment planning that utilizes symptom-focused goals often externally required while honoring the theoretical foundations of CCPT. This framework allows participants to create meaningful treatment plans that help assist Child-Centered Play Therapists in assessing and understanding progress in each session and document progress in each clinical progress note.

This training is both theoretical and practical and will include a toolkit of documentation resources that will help you build Child-Centered Documentation Treatment Plans and Progress Notes.

While this 10-hour workshop will give an overview of CCPT theory, it is not the focus. As such, this workshop assumes a basic understanding of CCPT theory and practice. Participants will be invited to engage with peers in breakout rooms to apply the principles to enhance learning.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify key ethical and legal aspects of documentation for play therapists
  • Describe the primary theory behind Child-Centered Play Therapy
  • Describe inherent theoretical challenges of creating symptom-focused goals when using the Child-Centered Play Therapy modality
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between symptom goals and internal growth goals
  • Identify four kinds of indicators of progress in Child-Centered Play Therapy
  • Apply principles of the Child-Centered Documentation framework to clinical examples by creating a Child-Centered Treatment Plan
  • Apply principles of the Child-Centered Documentation framework to assess progress in weekly Progress Notes
  • Demonstrate an understanding of using stages in play therapy to assess progress
  • Identify common themes in play therapy

What’s included in the Child-Centered Documentation Toolkit:

  • Access to Case Conceptualization Templates that help you organize client information
  • Extensive Objectives & Interventions Example List that are ready to be incorporated into your treatment plan
  • Editable Treatment Plan Template and Progress Note Template based on the Child-Centered Documentation framework
  • A 14-day trial of CCD Treatment Plan Generator* and CCD Progress Note Generator* that you can fill out to generate electronic documentation within minutes! (*This trial version is for testing only and is NOT HIPAA-compliant.)
