This workshop will teach attendees how to use Play Therapy as an incredible method of communication and diagnostics. It will teach you how to interpret the ways in which children and adolescents play, the importance of what they play with/what they create, and how to interpret their interactions with us as the professional. You will learn how to understand and determine what the individual is struggling with and causes for presenting behaviours and emotions.
Techniques can be used for anger (OCD), anxiety, ADHD, depression and self-esteem issues, trauma/PTSD, abuse and fears. Attendees will leave with a tool box of ready to use Play Therapy techniques that they will immediately be able to implement in their work with helping children, adolescents and even adults. This tool box will consist of appropriate tools for different problems. Some of the tools will include Sand Tray therapy, coloring, the use of puppets, clay use, dance/movement, “I Spy”, and so many other great techniques. Much of this workshop will include active learning and participation. So get ready to learn, have fun and see the world through a child’s eyes.
Play Therapy allows for the clinician to be creative, adapt techniques to fit any given individual or setting and is fun! This workshop will teach attendees a wide variety of such tools but will also do so in a hands on manner so that attendees can immediately return to work and implement these tools into their day to day work.
