(3) Progress Notes in Child-Centered Play Therapy – August 25, 2023
Documentation is a source of anxiety for many Child-Centered Play Therapists. Despite the prevalence and the need for documentation of clinical work, many play therapists received very little training on how to complete progress notes. This training will review basic requirements for clinical notes, review types of note formats, practice using objective language, and track progress towards goals and objectives.

Location: Zoom, 2.5 hours (2.5 APT-Approved specialized live-webinar hours)*
