Webinar: Using Gaming Technology in Therapy
Monday, Oct 5, 2020
12:00pm – 1:00pm
Today, 97% of young men engage in some sort of video gaming (and girls are catching up). Video gaming is a major part of the way youth spend their free time. Gaming can be used to help clients identify and extrapolate strengths they have in this area to areas of their lives where they struggle. This webinar will teach clinicians who work with youth how to utilize video games to identify strengths and skills, and support them in apply those skills and strengths to other areas of their lives. All those hours of Fortnite and Diablo and Call of Duty have developed a multitude of skills and critical thinking strategies — let’s help youth apply these skills outside a virtual environment!
Participants will learn how to support clients who use games/technology to identify and implement those strategies to attainment of their therapeutic goals.
- Participants will gain current knowledge about how gaming is being utilized in the therapeutic community.
- Participants will learn how to utilize clients gaming to identify and implement strength based interventions.
- Participants will be exposed to group based curriculum on how to utilize gaming in treatment.
- Participants will gain an understanding of how to use current technological advances as interventions during treatment.
