The Intro to SPT class is the best class I have ever taken. There is no better training for counselors! I have a deeper understanding of the process and how to help children in the playroom. It has given me a whole new perspective and changed my life both personally and professionally. Being authentic allows you to be free. There are just no words to describe it!” -Nancy Asher

In partnership with the Justice Institute of British Columbia, we’re excited to announce a 3 day in-person Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy course! This is the live version of our signature course, Online Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy.

With 18 hours of content (plus 6 consultation sessions), the Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy takes you on a journey to explore the neuroscience behind what is happening in the playroom, how to repattern a child’s nervous system, and what it means to become an external regulator in the playroom. You will also learn how to effectively work with parents and what it means to create a neuroception of safety allowing both the child and the parent to have a deeper integration. And if this wasn’t enough, you will come to understand the magic of aggressive play, sand and art from the perspectives of nervous system regulation, attunement, attachment, mindfulness, and authenticity.

You’ll learn all this while also how to avoid burnout and compassion fatigue. Come discover what showing up in the playroom truly means and explore what is happening in the play therapy process, how change occurs, and ultimately what it takes to help children heal at profound levels. And the best part is, you get to be you on the journey!

This course is designed for counselors, mental health professionals, social workers, therapists, school teachers, and child care workers.
