Event description

Description


October 18th and 19th, 2018

The principles and practices of play therapy enable practitioners to engage and motivate child clients in the therapeutic process by harnessing the healing power of play. Play therapy enables the therapist to become a trusted part of the child’s world. By grounding the therapist in the concept of using play as the process for client learning, play therapy training can help increase the insights, creativity and innovation of the therapist and make psychotherapy more developmentally appropriate for children.

This two day workshop — “Foundations of the Play Therapy Relationship” will provide clinicians with the foundations and creative interventions to work comfortably with children of all ages. Participants will learn hands-on, practical play therapy techniques that will help these children lower defensiveness and increase feelings of competency and success. Experiential activities, hands-on practice, and demonstration videos will be used to help participants gain insight into the child’s world. If you have child clients that are bored, disruptive or avoidant, then these two workshops are for you!
