Play Therapy Interventions for Self-Regulation & Relational Safety: Healing Interpersonal Trauma

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

ROOM 702

Many children who present for treatment following trauma have dysregulated systems, typically reflecting chronic instability at home and/or violence within the community. In this daylong Master Class, we liken this phenomena to being in a war zone. In the settings in which these speakers work, each uses play and creative arts therapies interventions to address hyperarousal and soothe the brainstem. Play (like the arts) is inherently fun, imaginative, and healing; using it skillfully with traumatized children can help them to self-regulate affect and feel safe in their bodies, homes, and communities once again.
