Play is the natural, innate language of children. Play therapy is a fascinating and freeing place for experiences to take on new meanings for player and facilitator. Play, as well as play therapy, at various times in history, in diverse cultures, and across generational differences takes on particular meanings and specific styles, anchored in explicit developmental and theoretical stances.
In this workshop, participants will learn to listen through the creative expression of play. Together, we will explore and discover the hidden life of play through music, art, dance, puppets and dolls, toys and games. Participants will be invited to uncover and explore their own playful self. Participants will encourage each other to create a safe and sacred space for play therapy to come alive.
Experiential aspects of the training offer clinicians practical and at times profound ways to use play therapy in current practice. Creative strategies will enable clinicians to use therapeutic play with clients of all ages.
