Synergetic Play Therapy: A Neurobiological Approach to Using Play in Therapeutic Practice with Children – Auckland, New Zealand
October 14 - October 15
Lisa Dion is the creator of Synergetic Play Therapy, a model of play therapy that uses a neuroscientific framework and emphasizes the critical role of the therapist. With the help of neuroscience, interpersonal neurobiology, and the Synergetic Play Therapy model, participants will explore in this 2- day workshop how to effectively use a way of play therapy that supports nervous system regulation and reorganization of the child’s lower centers of the brain.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to identify various nervous system states in their child clients and understand how to support regulation in the playroom. They will learn how to work with intense or aggressive play without causing their own nervous system to shut down or triggering vicarious trauma. Participants will gain further knowledge and skills on how to support their clients to maximize growth and integration of their experiences through Synergetic Play Therapy. Come prepared to play and have fun!
The training is suitable for clinicians working therapeutically with children and their families.
