Neurobiology of Play Therapy with Children and Teens: A Synergetic Approach

Date: 17 Feb 2020 - 18 Feb 2020


Therapists will spend two days exploring the basic components of therapy with children and teens from the lense of neurobiology and Synergetic Play Therapy. Through didactic and experiential teachings, therapists will learn cutting-edge research on interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, nervous system regulation and brain development as the research is translated into practical ways of working with children, teens and parents. Participants will also learn what it means to attach to one's self as the cornerstone for all healing, the importance of congruent emotional expression in the therapy room, how to identify types of dysregulation in your clients, how to build a child’s regulatory capacity, how to talk to and involve parents and ultimately how to re-pattern a child's nervous system through the therapy process.
