Expressive Play Therapy, A Holistic and Integrative Approach


Overview

This 4-day seminar is intended for experienced play therapists. We will address the challenges of helping traumatized children move past the traumatic play they engage in and regain the power of creative play that can help them safely access, release and integrate their painful experiences.

Learning Objectives and Content:

  Early Childhood Trauma


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


• The impact of trauma on the child’s psyche.

• Dissociation, hyper-vigilance and the various ways they manifest themselves.

• Overview of the major components of methods used in Holistic Expressive Play Therapy and methods used in a play session.

• Explore and learn expressive play therapy grounding methods to help dissociated hyper-vigilant children feel grounded enough to use symbolic play in a focused and productive way.

• View a slide presentation that illustrates how starting from the primary need of the child, the therapist follows and guides the child’s spontaneous play and uses interventions that combine the multi-sensory gifts of nature and body-centered exercises.

• View a slide presentation that illustrates how traumatized children have used expressive play therapy methods to come to terms with their painful experiences.

• Examine the role of the play therapist in facilitating the various stages of the recovery process.

• Consider the imagery created by traumatized children and explore and discuss the recurring patterns and symbols through the various stages of the play therapy process.

In the afternoons, participants have the opportunity to experience and explore various expressive play therapy media as related to the topic of trauma.
