Online Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy Six-Month Course – Summer Session Launches June 22nd
June 22 - November 20
Learn from anywhere! … The Online Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy is a 21-hour course that 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 includes three, one-hour LIVE webinars with Lisa Dion, six 2.5-hour recorded videos, and monthly group consultations** with a Synergetic Play Therapy™ Supervisor/Consultant to help you integrate what you are learning. It is designed for masters-level therapists and clinicians (or equivalent).
“Lisa Dion truly has a gift and I cannot wait to learn more about the SPT model. The Intro to SPT course gave me a true understanding of what we all go through in being human and the importance to “come back home.” This was such a wonderful foundation for being a therapist in general and in learning more rationale behind working in this field.” – Liz Keator
