Experiential play therapy skills / protective behaviours workshop
"It is in playing, and only by playing, that the individual, child or adult, is able to be creative and to use the whole personality, and it is only in being creative that the individual discovers the self" - D.W Winnicott.
I am really pleased to be able to offer an experiential play therapy skills workshop, incorporating aspects of the protective behaviours process into the day.
This will be a full, intensive day of "learning through doing" interspersed with theory.
- sand tray
- puppet making
- using clay
- creativity using paints
Introducing aspects of the protective behaviours process such as:
- effective communication
- conflict resolution
- choice and decision making
It will show how, through play and creativity, people can show how they experience the world, just as children do. Learn about the three stages of "messy play" and at what stage your client is at, and how to move them from one stage to another.
Information sheets will be provided on what happens in the brain as a result of "play" (basic neuroscience). Full and extensive handouts on how to develop your own sessions, how little resources you need to have an effective session.
