From Detached to Attached:  A Complex Clinical Case Study using Synergetic Play Therapy

Join Lisa Dion for this special presentation as she walks you through her healing journey with Sarah, an eleven year old girl adopted from China diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder, Learning Disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Autism.  During this discussion, Lisa invites you into her clinical process as she worked towards integration, regulation and re-patterning Sarah’s activated nervous system.  Lisa will share how she used Synergetic Play Therapy principles to help her conceptualize treatment for this complex case and ultimately how Synergetic Play Therapy was used clinically.  She will discuss the interventions used as she weaved together non-directive play, directive play, and parent/child relationship play to support the integration of underlying trauma, re-pattern Sarah’s ability to attach, and ultimately support her ability to connect to herself, the people in her life and the world around her.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will analyze how Synergetic Play Therapy principles helped conceptualize treatment and ultimately how Synergetic Play Therapy was used clinically.
  2. Participants will examine how non-directive, directive and parent/child play were used to support healing and integration.
