  • Training in RfG’s Improvisational Methods prepares therapists for their practical application.
  • RfG training via Zoom demonstrates how these techniques are applied in our teletherapy sessions.
  • Come engage in enacting these playful techniques, preparing you to employ them in either virtual or face-to-face therapy!
  • In this module series, each highly experiential training will focus on one or two case examples centering on the use of particular, well-tested RfG Games/techniques, and will include students’ practice in directing RfG enactments and post-enactment processing appropriate to their Level of prior training.
  • Though the emphasis will vary across modules, all these experiential training sessions are designed to increase both understanding and proficiency in the use of RfG Games and exercises for students at all Levels
    of prior experience.
  • Trainees will both be able to practice these Games and learn how they may be adapted to their own cases.

Participants Receive:

3 CE hrs per module for recredentialling as RDTs from NADTA;

3 hrs per module of Direct Instruction in the RfG Certified Practitioner program (see Certificate Program)
