Tips, Tricks and Techniques for Online Therapy with Children 

Presenter:  Liana Lowenstein, MSW, RSW, CPT-S

Date: June 10, 2020

Time:  10 am to 12 noon

This webcast is for mental health professionals who have foundational training in providing therapy to children, and who are seeking innovative strategies to transition to online counselling.


In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many child therapists are shifting their clinical practice to online sessions. While there are many issues to consider when conducting online therapy, one of the most important is how to engage children and help them work through their treatment issues. This can be particularly challenging when therapist and child are in different physical locations and there is a screen separating them. This webinar outlines innovative techniques to engage children in online therapy.   

Learning objectives:

  • Describe key guidelines for conducting an online intake meeting with caregivers
  • Implement creative online-friendly techniques to build therapeutic rapport with children
  • Utilize a variety of online-friendly interventions to assess children and to help them express feelings and learn effective coping strategies
