Episode 7: A Fresh Perspective on Working with Children
Episode 7: A Fresh Perspective on Working with Children
In the episode, we take a fresh look at working with children. You yourself may have opted to listen to this show because it is not your area of preference but you’ve seen enough children you want to hone in on your skills. Or you are looking for insight and understanding as to why you yourself are resistant to it and what to learn how to better understand and work through those fears. I think that we can all recognize the need to support this seemingly underserved population, especially as we roll through the pandemic and the many changes our youth has endured and will continue to endure over the coming months. In this episode, we undercover those fears and break the stereotypes that you might have in working with kids. Our specialist reminds you that working with kids can be both rewarding and fun. We will also hit on managing parent expectations and engagement in the process. By the end of this episode, we will have you changing your psychology today profile. Today with us we have clinician Jennfifer Matthes. Jennifer comes to us with a vast amount of experience and passion for working with children. She is a graduate of Marywood University in Pennsylvania and is a Registered Art Therapist who practices in Quakertown, PA at Jill Harle Counseling and Associates.
