Day 1: Friday, March 15, 8:30 - 4:30 Play Therapy Basics
Play therapy is an adaptable form of psychotherapy that has grown in popularity over the last seventy years. Built from the philosophy that play is a child’s natural form of communication, play therapy offers many therapeutic benefits when working with children. Unlike tradition treatment modalities, play therapy is not dependent upon a child’s verbal or developmental capacities and thus can be implemented for children with a diversity of developmental competencies. This training will highlight the use of play therapy with children who present with a range of behavioral and emotional challenges. Various theoretical models of play therapy will be discussed as well as research supported play therapy interventions. Experiential activities will be utilized throughout this presentation to enhance participants experience
Day 2: Saturday, March 16, 8:30 - 4:30 Play Therapy for Trauma
Traumatic experiences have become far too common in the lives of children. While no one is immune from traumatic experiences, children are particularly vulnerable to a diversity of adverse challenges. Specifically, the Adverse Childhood Experience Study (ACEs) found that over fifty percent of individuals will experience at least one form of childhood adversity. Additional studies have asserted that four out of ten adolescents will be exposed to violence. Moreover, it is estimated that seventeen percent of teens have been physically assaulted and eight percent of adolescents are survivors of sexual assault (The National Child Traumatic Stress Network, 2012). This training will highlight the use of play therapy when serving traumatized children. Specifically, this curriculum will offer participants evidenced-based research to support the implementation of play therapy strategies when working with teen who are addressing traumatic experiences. Likewise, the facilitator will demonstrate and provide experiential activities to provide specific play therapy techniques that are applicable for this population,
