Title: “This is a safe place”- Using Relationship Based Play Therapy in CPP to Increase Safety


Training Description: This workshop will focus on the use of dyadic play therapy as a treatment modality used to help the child and parent to learn to understand and verbalize thoughts and feelings associated to the traumatic experiences. For younger preverbal children, dyadic play therapy promotes the expression of feelings though symbolic play. Encouraging play, reciprocity, and shared affect between the parent and the child is an important part of the process of CPP. In this workshop, the use of play therapy will be explored as a means to create a sense of physical and psychological safety. In this workshop, CPP case examples will be applied to enhance practice.


Training Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to identify the core domains of interventions used in CPP.
  2. Participants will be able to define “ports of entry” and list one example of a “port of entry” in their own work or in a case example used during the workshop.
  3. Participants will be able to explain the goal of joint play therapy.
  4. Participants will be able to explain the therapist’s role in relationship- based play therapy.
  5. Participants will be able to name two ways that dyadic play therapy can enhance emotional safety.
