and
Play Therapy - Fun for the Whole Family

Presented by:

Baby Brains: Developmentally Sensitive Play Therapy with Infants and Young Children (Friday)

This training covers key neural developmental processes and sequences that contribute to critical concepts that are applicable to play therapy techniques with young children of varying ages, diagnoses, and relational trauma.  Key principles of neurodevelopment and neurobiology will be reviewed in relationship to critical clinical treatment decisions.  Early childhood relational trauma affects treatment decisions, we will look through the lens of attachment theory and at the therapist’s role in creating safety throughout the play therapy process. Training will include attachment-based experiential, body-sensing play therapy techniques to implement with young populations.

Play Therapy – Fun for the Whole Family (Saturday)

This workshop is designed to refresh therapists and expand clinician’s tool kits for working with families, parent-child dyads and various types of groups. Using an attachment framework, we will learn and practice play therapy interventions that can be used from the beginning to the end of treatment. Techniques and interventions will address common to complex issues that families bring to therapy. Come ready to play!
