Event description

Description

Fairy Tales hold fascination for play therapists and clients alike. Rainer Maria Rilke stated: "Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love".

As play therapists, we might want to adapt these stories to target specific client difficulties and challenges. What themes does a particular tale explore? What do popular culture movies and stories reveal about archetypes such as Father, Mother, Stepmother, Witch, Siblings? What might we want to get across through a tale to a troubled client? Through this workshop we will begin to explore the nature of symbolic meanings in fairy tales through specific fairy tales for both girls and boys in treatment. Storytelling, case presentation, experiential sandtrays, poetry, creative art, and guided group discussion will enhance the understanding of chosen tales.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will be able to describe two (2) play therapy practices which use fairy tales to enhance the relationship between client and therapist.

2. Participants will be able to identify three (3) uses of fairy tales for play therapists in the clinical setting.

3. Participants will be able to identify three (3) themes in fairy tales to encourage mastery as a part of play therapy practice.

4. Participants will be able to identify the four (4) journey stages for both boy and girl clients in the play therapy setting when using fairy tales.

5. Participants will learn three (e) different strategies to target specific client challenges (such as self-regulation and mindfulness) in the play therapy setting using fairy tale imagery and symbolism.

6. Participants will be able to explain the concept of Individuation and relate this understanding to the unique role that fairy tales can perform in play therapy practice.
