AskATeddy, LLC--Teddy Bears as Tools for Play Therapy and Training Family Therapists for Depression Assessment Beyond Mapping and Other Approaches in the Clinical System
Are you an experienced counselor who may, from time to time, need assistance in drawing out a client out of his or her shell as part of a talk therapy system? Do you need other clinical tools to help you in the mapping out the medical history of a family, especially when it comes to depression assessment
This is where the Teddy Bear Technique comes in. While it is not intended as a substitute for traditional clinical tools and methods such as mapping, this kind of play therapy is ideal for schools, mental health centers, hospitals, and more. Developed by Tammy Stoner, LSCW, this is one of the best solutions available once you’ve exhausted all assessment options in the current clinical system.
As its name suggests, this technique makes use of a set of teddy bears called the MeBear Family, which are used as tools to help clients cope with depression, anger, grief, and more. This evidence-based play therapy is suitable not just for kids of different genders or racial and social backgrounds, but also for adolescents and adults. The Teddy Bear Technique also employs hypnotherapy to obtain these results.
Learn this technique starting with scheduling a training session with Ms. Stoner herself, who is willing to guide groups of health education and welfare providers in every step of the way. These training sessions include a live demonstration of the Teddy Bear Technique to gather information on family history on an individual. For those who cannot attend a training session due to time or budgetary constraints, a Teddy Bear Technique Toolkit is also available for self-study.
As a licensed professional, Ms. Stoner also accepts appointments from individual clients seeking therapy, especially those who need hypnosis.
With these offered by Ms. Stoner through her Teddy Bear Technique and other independent services, the choice is clear. If you are an experienced counselor that have been failed by traditional assessment and treatment methods in the medical system for depression such as mapping, try this brand of play therapy. The Teddy Bear Technique may just be the breakthrough you’re looking for.
