Play Therapy is an incredible communication tool for children when they are unable to verbally express themselves. Through play, children are allowed to:
Become aware of and express their feelings
Reduce fear, anxiety and depression
You will leave with a toolbox filled with ready to use Play Therapy techniques that you will immediately implement in your work with children and can also be adapted for clients of all ages.
In this recording, you will learn how to interpret the way in which children play, the importance of what they play with, what they create and the significance of patterns in their play. You will learn to “listen” to what they are telling you. Play Therapy expert, Lucy Barbera, Ph.D., will show you how to effectively use sand trays, coloring exercises, puppets, dance/movement, “I Spy”, Gift Boxes and so many other powerful techniques. Much of this conference will include active learning and hands-on participation. So get ready to learn and have fun!
