Special Topics in Play Therapy: Infants, Toddlers & Nuerosensory Play


Infants/Toddlers Part 1:

Early Childhood experiences set the foundation for self-identity, relationships, and regulation. Within this workshop you will examine brain development, attachment, trauma and challenging behaviors through the lens of early childhood in the play room. Participants will identify the implications of practice with these little ones through experiential play therapy activities that can be utilized immediately. Participants will also make connections with how early childhood knowledge and connections can help with all ages, including adults.

Neurosensory Part 2:

Why is this child always bumping into things? Why is he always chewing on something? Why can’t she sit still? Kids can have some quirky behaviors sometimes. In this workshop participants will become sensory detectives, uncovering and examining all of the sensory systems (not just the 5 we usually think of), and how they can apply them to help clients grow, cope and learn. This play therapy workshop allows for much experiential learning, and subsequent toolbox building, to have a deeper connection of sensory development and interventions.
