Counseling is both an art and a science. The science part—research, theories, techniques—is taught in college, but the art part is more difficult to teach. In this webinar, Samuel Gladding, Ph.D., discusses the basic tenets of creative counseling and demonstrates how all counselors can benefit from a little playtime. Dr. Gladding explains the importance of being creative with clients and gives tips on how to be creative even when one is busy and time is short. He also answers questions from counselors regarding ways they can integrate creativity into their sessions. Dr. Gladding is the author of the American Counseling Association’s popular book, Creative Arts In Counseling.
