Expressive Play Therapy, A Holistic and Integrative Approach

Overview

This 3-day seminar is for practitioners who use play therapy with children who have experienced multiple traumatic events within the context of pervasive and severe maltreatment —including different forms of abuse (emotional, physical, sexual), neglect and witnessing domestic violence.

We will focus on using expressive play therapy methods to help such children deal with the emotional, cognitive and behavioural issues that bring them to therapy. In the process, we will explore the many ways of helping maltreated children strengthen themselves and, time permitting, begin to heal their wounds and live more healthily in a reality that often cannot be changed.

  Expressive Play Therapy Methods to Help the Abused and Neglected Child

Learning Objectives and Content:

• Theoretical principles of Holistic Expressive Play Therapy as related to the subject of complex trauma:

• The crucial role of attachment and the effects of lack of, loss of, and distortions of attachment caused by pervasive maltreatment.

• The effects of various forms of abuse and neglect on the child’s development.

• Theoretical principles underlying the use of expressive therapies with children who have suffered from interpersonal trauma.

• Identify and address the therapeutic needs specific to abused and neglected children during a play therapy session.

• Provide a reparative experience that addresses the child's most basic needs, taking into  account his/her emotional, cognitive and behavioural stage of development.

• Use of imagery and a variety of expressive play therapy methods to help maltreated children internalize a sense of safety and develop positive memories to draw upon when needed.

• Expressive play therapy methods to help children safely deal with painful issues related to different forms of abuse illustrated by case examples.

• Viewing and discussion of videotaped excerpt illustrating how a child who suffered from complex trauma used a play session to deal with such issues.

In the afternoons participants will be given the opportunity to practice and further explore the use of expressive play therapy with maltreated children through role plays and discussion of case concerns.
