Description

Presented by Karen Doyle Buckwalter, this Theraplay® Level One training prepares participants to begin using Theraplay Informed Practice in their work. Theraplay® is a child and family modality of play therapy for building and enhancing attachment, self-esteem, trust in others, and joyful engagement. This four-day training is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of the Theraplay model. After completing this training, participants will be able to begin applying Theraplay principles into their work with existing and new clients.

  • Using video, we feature demonstration of treatment of a real client family including the Marschak Interaction Method assessment, feedback to the parents and several Theraplay® sessions.
  • The training is interactive, intense and practical—you’ll leave with the knowledge and skills to begin using Theraplay® in your work.
  • It features video of Theraplay® treatment with many different clients in addition to the demonstration family.
  • The training includes interactive sessions to practice a variety of Theraplay® activities.
