StoryPlay® Therapy: Multi-sensory Transformational Play Therapy for All Ages

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Story after story, we hear about extraordinary people transcending traumatic events. This daylong Master Class will introduce StoryPlay®, an internationally recognized model of play therapy that offers a restorative approach to reawakening the inner “resiliency pathways” inherent in all people. This resiliency-based, indirective model weaves together elements of story, metaphor, creativity, and expressive arts to form a unique and proven method to effect positive change, healing, and problem-solving for those who have experienced trauma and/or grief. With its theoretical foundations rooted in the principles of Dr. Milton H. Erickson, indigenous wisdom teachings, and concepts of cultural diversity, this multi-sensory healing method is applicable to working in therapy with all ages and a wide variety of populations.
