Understanding Trauma, Attachment and Using Play Therapy practices as Interventions with Children
An introduction to attachment, trauma theory & play therapy to help children cope with adverse life experiences.
Chronic stress, childhood adversity and various forms of trauma are often encountered by children, families and communities in our work. Children learn to make sense of their world through a healthy co-regulating relationship with their primary caregiver or a significant adult in their lives. Play is also how children express themselves naturally, connect with themselves, others and their environment.
This interactive workshop focuses on introducing attachment and trauma theory, understanding nervous system regulation and bottom-up processing, along with play therapy to help children and youth cope and work through adverse life experiences.
This workshop also is a great opportunity for participants to be introduced to Play Therapy, and will provide an array of practical strategies and tools, along with various directive and non-directive interventions to use with clients of a wide age range. From an experiential lens, this training explores how to understand and apply strategies to support children, youth and families on their path to healing.
This workshop will cover:
- Trauma and Attachment theory
- Trauma-informed principles of care
- Neuroscience of nervous system regulation
- Adverse Childhood Experiences
- Child-Centered Play Therapy
And much more.
