We are growing: Meet the team at 3P

It has been incredibly busy at 3P in the last few months. As well as opening our new premises, we have had a number of referrals and growing the team. 

We are welcoming many new team members…
Meet Melissa, admin support, and Lisa, psychologist, who are starting this week! and a growing team!

Jade started a couple of weeks ago. She is Masters of Counselling student from Monash University completing a yearly placement at 3P. Jade will be responsible for individual and group programs at 3P.
Candice is a provisional psychologist and started a few weeks ago and is completing her final placement at 3P. She is mainly doing assessments at 3P and hoping to offer support too.
Sasha will start at 3P very soon. She is also a provisional psychologist currently.
Both Candice and Sasha are completing their PhD in Educational and Developmental Psychology at Monash University and hoping to publish their first articles soon so they can become fully registered psychologists and support many children, adolescents and families at 3P.
Kathryn is also a provisional psychologist who started a few weeks ago and is currently helping with assessment work on Saturdays. Kathryn is finishing her Masters in Clinical Psychology at Cairmillar and will continue to work at 3P once she is fully registered.
Tracy and Hanna have been part of the team for a little while now and support functions at reception.
Hanna will be doing her provisional psychologist placement for 2 years at 3P as soon as she completes her psychology degree at Cairnmillar Institute this Spring.
At 3P, we continue to implement our vision of training the workforce and supporting learning and skills development in the child and adolescent psychology space!

In the mix, Covid continues to impact on face to face work which can be challenging. We continue to offer services online via telehealth and our unique virtual therapy rooms.
We also apply the criteria from the government when making decisions about who is coming on site: appointments can’t be postponed due specific timelines or a number of previous cancellations due to restrictions or/and a person’s wellbeing is at risk or deteriorating and care is required. 
You can contact us to discuss this further. 0391194433

At 3P, we aim to be creative and offer a range of support. We are now developing different individual and group programs.
Jade will be supporting these and also Sasha when she starts art 3P. These can be delivered at the clinic (online and individual only) or in schools.
Here is some information below about these packages. 
To come Third Culture Kids (TCK)/Cross-Culture Kids (CCK) wellbeing online support groups for adolescents across Australia

Resource #57: Virtual Therapy room checklist

Virtual therapy rooms have sparked many therapists’ attention as these can be really supportive when working online with children. These can also help storing resources in one place, support communication with parents and create engaging activities. At 3P, we have designed a number of packages to support your work online.

Virtual therapy rooms can also support an hybrid way of working to ensure therapists can promptly move from online work to face to face work with fluidity. This week’s circuit breaker 5 day lockdown in Melbourne was a clear reminder that sudden transfer to Telehealth will stay for some time to come. 

Going forward you can access packages via a short course on the 3P learning platform. Packages all include many virtual therapy rooms, activities uniquely designed by 3P, resources, links, a give away of all the package rooms at the end of course, a completion certificate and a short assignment task.

To help you and guide you in designing your virtual therapy rooms, here is a PDF you can download. This is a checklist to follow when creating virtual therapy rooms.

You can also connect with many in our Facebook group to share your creations.

What if we were grateful for 2020…

I am seeing lots of newsfeed, posts and hearing comments about the need to get to 2021 urgently so that 2020 is finally over. Comments like this…

“So looking forward for 2020 to be over so we can move one”

“Very much looking to see the back of this year, 2020 is suck”

“We deserve a better year next year, I had enough of this one”

“Next year will be so much better”

And so on…

Yes we had a tough year, yeS with many challenges, yes many may want to turn the page…but what if turning the page too quickly or in frustration, without gratitude, may lead to even more problems in the future…

What if we take the time to pause and reflect on what 2020 has taught us so that we can learn from it and steer in a different direction..

In fact, in 2020, we saw many exceptional things happen…to name a few…

Significant reduction of carbon monoxide emission worldwide

Rise for equality and human rights

Watching leaders manage a pandemic which allowed for positive leaders to shine and many cracks of negative leaders to be uncovered

Recognising the importance of health, care and education workers as key to the front services of a society

Acknowledging security of employment as important and taking steps to remediate inequalities and offer solutions

Slowing down fast pace work by reducing travelling hours such as long commutes, international travels

Return to the need to meet basic needs such as health, security, housing

Telehealth recognised as important and essential to offer support to many

Technology being a key to connecting with family, friends, colleagues and supporting learning with many learning new skills

Making working from home a possibility allowing work-life balance and meeting family commitments

Maximising time to be with our children and as a bubble family

Taking time to reconnect with hobbies such as creating, cooking, reading, making

Connecting with nature, gardening, plants, flowers, animals

What if 2020 delivered a huge message saying “I can’t take it anymore, things have to change”.

What if we should listen carefully to what 2020 said…

What if we were grateful for learning points of 2020 before turning the page, because many things may be here to stay.

Not only that, 2021 will be a turning point for the world as we will need to face the challenges 2020 brought so vividly and all at once bringing a need to heal and receive, and put in place lessons learnt.

What if 2020 was there to help us pause and reflect of what is really important in life and re-centre our actions in a constructive manner and a slightly different cap for 2021 with exciting projects that are grounded in what we value the most and what has been reflected upon…

Let’s think about it, let’s leave 2020 grateful and in peace of a better tomorrow…

#Resources 56: Virtual Therapy Rooms

Whilst creating and finalising the content of the Creative Approaches when Working with Children Online, I came across Bitmoji Therapy Rooms. I initially did not think it applied to the therapeutic work we do as it was more referred to as Virtual Classrooms. As I am not a teacher with a class, it did not feel so relevant. I did a little more exploration and I am now completely sold on the idea that these virtual rooms are amazing and so helpful in planning our work with children.

Are you running out of ideas when working online with children?

Not sure what else to do to keep children engaged in online therapy?

Finding the whole online process tiring and exhausting?

Virtual therapy rooms is probably what you need. I really think it could revolutionise ways of working as a therapist.

What are Virtual Therapy Rooms?

You create rooms in Google Slides or Powerpoint and insert your Bitmoji in the presentation. There are a few technical hurdles associated with getting the technology right initially, but it does then become second nature and designing the rooms become easier. I made mine in Google as I have a Google Drive, it seemed easy this way.

Videos on YouTube and professional Facebook groups have shared resources to get you started. Therapists are also selling their rooms on TeachersPayTeachers to help you. I decided I really wanted to design my own as it can be personal as you design your rooms, depending on the type of work you mostly do, presentation and needs of children and families, and also your own creative style. It is so much fun thinking about it all and bringing it together.

Yes you have to be particularly creative. This is what is so exciting! Who does not like a bit of interior designing!

I share in this post the photo of my first room. You can see a room with me and many objects in my room. All the objects are linked to other Google slides or web links. You can link worksheets from your Google Drive to the presentation. This is what is amazing!

All your therapy resources in ONE Google Slideshow!

Here is another example of a room about feelings where each of the big emojis lead to a different room with links about these different emotions.

You can have as many rooms as you want, depending on children’s needs. I have designed a few now: feelings’ room, doll’s house, chill out room and a Take a Break room, to name only a few. You could also have a Parent Room where you have lots of top tips and information.

How to Use the Virtual Therapy Rooms?

In sessions, you present the slides, show rooms, using the shared screen functions. You can give remote control access to the child so that one has control over visiting rooms and clicking activities or the child can tell you where to click on the screen. This way you discover together different activities, rooms and resources. If a child is talking about a specific topic, you can direct the conversation to the room where information is shared on the topic.

The most amazing of it all is that you can share your Google Slides with clients with the Share button so they can revisit rooms or look at them in advance. You can also create a PDF and all links remain. You can then send a room to parents in an email with all the links you covered during the session.

What Does Not Change?

All your skills as a psychologist are still needed, including clinical judgement, knowledge of the discipline and scientist-practitioner, all your essential competencies. This is just a way to store all your resources in one place, increase engagement from children in sessions and support communication with parents.

Could Bitmoji Therapy Rooms Revolutionise the Online Therapy World with Children?

I am such a visual person and also a creator-designer, love art work so this type of approach is completely revolutionary for me as a child psychologist but also for training! I love that it keeps all the resources in one place. Even when we go back to face to face work, this resource will still be useful for videos, web based resources and communication with parents. You could still use a room during a face to face session when you want to share a video with a child for example.

I have now created over 30 therapy rooms and completely beside myself on how amazing these work. It feels such a long way since March 2020 when many moved to working online, scared and anxious about the prospect.

This resource has to be a life changer for therapists!

You can join Creative Approaches when Working with Children Online where these rooms will be discussed and shared. You will have 10 rooms with links and resources you can then tailor to your needs.

We set up free live events and the recording is now available with links and resources. Here is the link to register. https://learning.3ppsychologies.com/courses/free-live-event-virtual-therapy-rooms-2-an-amazing-resource

We also set up a Creating Virtual Therapy Live Workshop and the recording is also available for viewing at a low cost of $20 (AUD) https://learning.3ppsychologies.com/courses/virtual-therapy-rooms. With this training, 5 rooms, links and resources will be shared with you. If you are interested in a live workshop, get in touch and I will do what I can to arrange this.

You can also register for the 2 courses as a bundle https://learning.3ppsychologies.com/bundles/creating-for-children-online

I am also happy to offer specific tailored training for practitioners and workplaces/practices who would like this training for a number of practitioners. Get in touch with me, we can arrange something together.
