Clinical Consultation Group

Join Liana Lowenstein’s monthly clinical consultation group. Meetings are the second Monday of each month, 7:30-9:30 pm EST, by Skype. 

The consultation group offers a safe and supportive environment to discuss clinical work. Sessions focus on issues of assessment, treatment planning, and therapeutic interventions. The group is open to licensed mental health practitioners with at least two years clinical experience with children. The cost is $50 per person for each two-hour session, with a minimum three-session commitment. The group is limited to 10 participants so contact me to see if space is available. For further info call 416-575-7836 or send email (under subject: Consultation Group) to

Child and play therapy reading list and resources

I often receive requests for a list of recommended reading on Child and Play Therapy, so I have compiled a list of books, videos, and organizations and posted this list on my website. Check it out by clicking here.

Featured Technique

Add to your repertoire of creative therapeutic interventions. Check out this month’s featured technique on my website: Soaring to New Heights by Kelly Cassano.

YouTube video

The Feel Better Bag technique encourages client self-care and teaches healthy coping strategies. Watch this technique come alive on YouTube.

I welcome your feedback on this technique as well as your ideas for teaching healthy coping strategies to clients, so please post your comments on my YouTube channel. Subscribe to my channel and get announcements on the latest activity.

Discount offer of the month

A remarkable educational toy and learning game Thumball by Answers In Motion develops inter-personal communication skills in a fun, effective way. Each soft soccer style ball is imprinted with questions and prompts. It creates instant conversation and interaction. A simple game of catch is elevated to a functional way to play and learn in groups small or large.

Ideal for a therapeutic or classroom environment, simply roll, pass or toss Thumball, then while holding it in your hand locate the panel under your right thumb and respond to the prompt. It may ask you to recall a favorite movie, identify a life experience or name specific words in a category.

Some favorite Thumballs chosen by counselors, therapists, and teachers include:
1. “Who Are You” is a fun easy way to get acquainted for all ages.
2. “Emotion Mania” to expand knowledge/usage of feeling words.
3. “Virtues & Values” to expand understanding of personal characteristics and goal setting for teen to adult.
