Check Out Our Six-Day SPT Intensives
Happening several times throughout each year, the six-day intensive is for Masters-level therapists, teachers and clinicians who want to jump in and really experience the magic of Synergetic Play Therapy.
“Seldom have play therapists concentrated on lower brain symptomatology of hyperarousal, affective regulation or physical modulation of impulses. These are all symptoms characteristically suggestive of low brain disorganization (brainstem and diencephalon regions) and all common autonomic symptoms of severe trauma exposure,” -Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, author of Psychological Trauma.
We designed the course to introduce play therapists to pertinent information on brain development, the projective process, affect attunement attachment and nervous system regulation that impacts the children in the play therapy room. Specific attention will be given to interventions that are designed to repattern the disorganization in the lower brain centers, areas that are often unaddressed in many current play therapy models.
When therapists become centered, they can facilitate collaborative communication, thus creating a synergy between themselves and the child. “Such communication allows for the creation of brain connections that are vital for the development of a child’s capacity for self regulation,” says Mindsight Institute Executive Director, Dr. Dan Siegel, M.D.
