Treating angry feelings and angry behaviors in a creative positive way for children, challenges mental health providers daily. Creative techniques in play therapy act as mediators, a bridge, a pathway to a force for positive change.
Join us for a ride on the affective roller coaster using popular theories, such as Polyvagal, Sensorimotor, and Somatic Experiencing to achieve Emotional Intelligence. Music, singing, and drumming each have useful techniques for calming raw rage. Dance and movement therapy offer effective means of soothing frazzled nerve endings. Art therapy allows for the creative energy of the child to come forward naturally through client-centered play, as well as directive play. Digital experiences and toys bring play to life.
Aid parents/caregivers, families and children to deal effectively with the variations of anger and its expression through Psychodrama and Puppet Therapy. These dramatic arts aid the release of the narrative underneath children’s anger. Meditative practices of yoga and breathing, as well as various types of meditation are daily reminders of the child’s body – mind – spirit connection. Spirituality, often forgotten, is vital to many families, conceivably incorporated into the healing process. Receive feedback about use of the various creative techniques.
