2017 Training Sessions
Trauma Resilient Interventions
Almost half of the nation’s children have experienced at least one or more types of serious childhood trauma, according to the National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH). This growing statistic requires mental health professionals to be better informed and skilled at serving trauma survivors, using best practice interventions. Trauma is a sensory experience that impacts the mind and body, therefore treatment must include sensory based interventions to facilitate the healing process. This experiential play therapy workshop will provide an overview of how trauma impacts the mind and body, and why the use of sensory based interventions are needed to best support trauma survivors. Participants will get a chance to interact, play, and have fun as we practice sensory-based interventions to use with child and adolescent trauma survivors.
Yoga and Mindfulness Tools for Play Therapists
This experiential workshop will introduce participants to different types of yoga, breathing, and mindfulness exercises that can be used to enrich sessions for both play therapists and clients. Opportunities to practice, create and play will be part of the workshop so participants can identify play therapy techniques that will be the most effective to meet client’s needs. Play Therapy participants will leave with an understanding of ways to incorporate multiple techniques into their sessions. Plan to bring a Yoga mat or you can borrow one and wear comfortable clothes to move in!
