Theraplay: Neurophysiological Applications & Treatment Strategies

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

ROOM 711

Theraplay is an attachment-based family therapy model that focuses on the relationship between child and caregiver. In this 3-hour workshop, participants will be introduced to its core theoretical framework, including the four essential qualities found in the child-caregiver relationship: Structure, Engagement, Nurturance, and Challenge. Current neurophysiological research involving Therapeutic Presence, Mindfulness, and Attachment Theory will be discussed using the Theraplay model, and experiential exercises will demonstrate how to teach the parent/caregiver communicate love, joy, and safety to the child, and help regulate their behavior. By learning the theory and techniques of Theraplay, participants will gain the knowledge and tools to guide families towards rebuilding their relationships “from the inside out.”
