Treating Racial and COVID Trauma in Children
9:15 – 9:30 | Introduction/Opening Remarks
9:30 – 10:15 | Chris Kido
Utilizing ZOOM Technology in the time of COVID
This training explores the challenges of utilizing tele-therapy during the COVID pandemic. The “whiteboard” function of Zoom was used by the client to express feeling associated with the pandemic, and his yet unexpressed worries and fears for his caregiver who is a frontline physician in NYC. Prior to producing these drawings, the client struggled finding language to express much of his internal feeling state. These drawings, which will be posted during the presentation, allowed the client to locate his fears and worries outside of himself, and led him to utilizing language to represent his internal state.
- Upon completion of this training participants will be able utilize the “whiteboard” function in Zoom to deepen treatment through online drawing.
- Course participants will be able to apply developmental theory of Latency to their child and adolescents cases.
- Course participants will be able to differentiate characteristics of typical and atypical Latency development as impacted by trauma.
