Continuing Education Short Video Series

Our latest offering:
Black Dolls and Plaited Hair: 5 Considerations When Working with Afro Canadian Children in Play Therapy

In our second webinar, RMPTI Director Lorri Yasenik meets with Mercy Yeboah-Ampadu.

"Mercy and I have been friends and colleagues for well over a decade, and she has been instrumental in providing me with valuable insight/knowledge into the cultural perspectives of the Afro-Canadian Community.

Owing to the great success of her presentation during the Diversity Workshop last October, I thought what better place to continue this series than with an expert, colleague and friend. Mercy presents five considerations when working with Afro-Canadian Children in the play therapy setting. In her latest offering, Mercy emphasizes the ways you can bring cultures together through understanding by exploring inner narratives and celebrating diversity within this growing community."

- Lorri A Yasenik, PhD, RSW, RPT-S, CPT-S
