Includes 2 hours of Group Supervision after the Course!

This 4-day comprehensive child-centered play therapy workshop series is designed to teach therapists may work with young children. Not only will clinical skills be taught, but participants will learn basic infant mental health principals, how trauma, attachment and other risk factors affect mental health, as well as how to use play as an assessment tool. Participants will learn to interpret children’s language of play and how to response in therapeutic ways so children can heal and reach their full potential. 

The course runs over two full weekends: The first weekend, we will focus on the didactic component, along with role-play, use of video, and practice activities. The second weekend will be experiential; with basic play therapy skill development – and this is where the series differs from other workshops. There will be ample time to practice skills learned and to receive input on your most difficult cases. Not only will participants practice skills in the workshop, but each will have the opportunity to videotape their own session for reflective supervision to allow greater personal and professional development. Two hours of Group Supervision after the Course is included in the price.  In this way, the workshop can provide the greatest individual growth.

This is a great start to becoming a registered play therapist!
