A Palette of Family Play Therapy Approaches

ROOM 808

This session will feature a case study to demonstrate a combination of Family Play Therapy approaches used in working with a family with two adopted sons; one being extroverted and high energy, and the other, quiet and often dissociative. Three methods will be highlighted: Filial Therapy, Relational Sandtray, and Somatic Experiencing. Filial Therapy is an evidence-based model focusing on attachment and parenting skills in which the parent becomes the direct agent of change. Relational Sandtray involves the parent-child dyad and combines the dynamic world of sand scenes, storytelling, and video. Somatic Experiencing concentrates on the effect of trauma on the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) and on interventions that promote healing by increasing regulation of the ANS. Videos of Filial Therapy and Sandtray sessions will be shown, and activities that safely expand the “Window of Tolerance” (the dance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems) will be demonstrated and practiced.

Eligible for 3.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS

This session also eligible for APT credits
