Child Therapy Case Consultation
Combining Gestalt and expressive arts therapies, eminent child therapist Dr. Violet Oaklander has been training therapists from around the world in her unique approach for several decades. 

With a warm and supportive presence, Oaklander offers guidance to three therapists, each struggling with difficult cases. From an 11-year-old boy who was expelled from school soon after his parents separated, to a 6-year-old girl who has been shuffled around to five foster homes in three years, to a boy entering puberty who was molested when he was four, Oaklander shares her wisdom and expertise on child development, trauma, and the nuts and bolts of exploring children’s inner worlds. Additionally, she offers detailed advice about engaging with parents and building a child’s sense of self.

Sprinkling in Gestalt themes such as the importance of contact and following the aliveness, Oaklander also demonstrates the specifics of using art therapy techniques to explore each child’s emotional landscape. By sitting in on this consultation session, you will receive a wealth of concrete, practical strategies, and walk away feeling more confident in your ability to bring child therapy to life.

"This video is really a gem. Dr. Oaklander's pioneering gestalt work with children is demonstrated with clarity and presence in these three complex and challenging cases. A must have for training child therapists and seasoned clinicians as well."
 - Patric White, PhD, psychotherapist & intern supervisor, Hermosa Beach, CA

"Oaklander's guidance demonstrates how the supervisor facilitates the counselor's attention to mindfulness while at work. As a supervisor she blends theory, practice, and her own experience to enrich the viewing of the cases and to suggest interventions, while respecting the counselor's personal views and their therapeutic judgements of cases. Not only do children find her in a strong advocate; but also supervisees receive effective feedback that allows them to better understand their clinical pressures and the work they are carrying out."
 - Maria Oliver-Garza, reviewed in The Professional Counselor: Research and Practice

" A delightful DVD from Violet Oaklander. This DVD and manual are excellent and heartwarming. I
highly recommend them."
 -  Maria Escalante de Smith MA, reviewed in The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter
