Event description

Description

Through the use of Theraplay®, this workshop focuses on how to make play your most valuable parenting tool. Based on the dimensions of structure, nurture, engagement, and challenge, Theraplay® allows parents and children to strengthen attachment, build self-esteem, and participate in a more positive relationship with one another. Participants in this workshop will learn more about the science behind play, how play can be utilized to enhance relationships, and practical skills that can be used in the home.

Guests who attend all day in-person will receive lunch, experience the afternoon session's hands-on activities, and 6 CEU contact hours.
Live streaming will be available for the morning session only, and those guests will receive 3 CEUs.

About the Speaker

Originally from West Texas, Lauren moved to Oklahoma in 2007 on a whim and has been here ever since. Lauren loves doing life with her husband, their two goofy dogs, and little girl, Z. Professionally, she is a licensed clinical social worker. She works in private practice to provide therapeutic services to children, adolescents, and adults in both individual and family settings. Lauren has additional experience in working with individuals touched by foster care/adoption, trauma, and autism spectrum disorder. She also provides select adoption services including domestic home studies and post-placement visits. When she is out of the office...Lauren is a coach's wife, an avid reader, a classic introvert, and a first-time mom. She spends her time traveling throughout Oklahoma to watch various sporting events, taking spontaneous road trips (the fewer plans...the better), spending nights reading on the back porch, and enjoying good food with friends.
