Revolutionising Play in Therapeutic Practice with Children and Young People: A Two-Day Workshop – Cambridgeshire, England
July 17 - July 18
Using hands-on and practical techniques, Lisa will assist the group to trace the moment to moment shifts in regulation between the professional and child, providing a level of insight which supports the transformation of aggression into ways of connecting and mutual trust.
Lisa’s approach highlights how a compassionate and relational orientation is critical to be aware of the multiple layers of meaning that occur in the exchanges between professional and child/young person.
This training will benefit child/adolescent therapists, social workers, teachers, heath play staff, early years teacher practitioners, SENCOs and psychologists.
Participants will come away with a range of new skills and strategies that include:
- Being able to describe how to relate from a neurobiological perspective
- Learning how to set boundaries without shaming or shutting down the child
- Learning how to make aggressive play therapeutic
- Understanding how to work with the intensity of aggressive play without the professional’s own nervous system shutting down resulting in compassion fatigue and burn out
- Learning how to become the external regulator to deepen children’s ability to integrate the challenging experiences they are working through
