About the Event
This two day, in-person course is designed to help play therapists understand therapeutic play from a neuro-biological perspective. With the help of neuroscience, interpersonal neurobiology, and a Synergetic Play Therapy framework, you will learn how to effectively work with therapeutic play in a way that supports nervous system regulation, reorganization of the child's lower centers of the brain, and promote healing for the child. The result is the transformation of trauma play into ways of connecting, healing, and mutual trust. Through role play, discussion, and experiential exercises, you will learn practical techniques that can be used right away in your playroom.
