Program Content Description / Learning Objectives:
Day One: Using Play Therapy to Treat Attachment Disorders
Children with traumatic early life experiences are at risk for attachment disorders. This training will help play therapists develop a fundamental understanding of how attachment impacts brain development. We will explore how play therapy interventions, including Theraplay®, can assist in helping form secure attachments between children and caregivers. Video clips of attachment based play therapy will be shown. Learning how to educate and involve caregivers in play therapy to promote healthy attachment will also be explained.

Day Two: Taming the Worry Monster: Play Therapy with Anxious Children
Anxiety is a common problem for many children. Whether the anxiety arises from genetic factors or environmental conditions children need to find a way to face the anxiety and master it. This training will examine the symptoms of anxiety and how it impacts children. We will explore play therapy interventions as a way of teaching children how to manage anxiety producing situations. The parent’s role in the play therapy process will also be discussed.
