Facilitator- Lisa Remey MEd, LPC-S, NCC, RPT-S
Date: June 22, 2018
This seminar will provide an overview of the lifestyle and cultural aspects of counseling military populations discussing common presenting issues (e.g., deployments, moving). Play-based interventions for use with children and families will be discussed and experienced. Understanding how the military population has their own distinctive lifestyle, code of manners, norms and expectations of all members is critical to provide effective services to the military community. Play therapists will learn how the military culture consists of different dress, language, shared beliefs, rituals and norms.
