Hawaii APT Conference (Virtual): Revolutionizing Play & Therapeutic Practice with Children
March 4, 2022 - March 5, 2022
This two-day virtual training will be delivered by Lisa Dion creator of Synergetic Play Therapy© and founder and President of the Synergetic Play Therapy Institute.
Revolutionizing Play & Therapeutic Practice is designed to help practitioners understand therapeutic play from a neuro-biological perspective. With the help of neuroscience, interpersonal neurobiology, and a Synergetic Play Therapy framework, practitioners will learn how to effectively work with therapeutic play in a way that supports nervous system regulation, reorganization of the child’s lower centers of the brain and promote healing for the child. Through video, discussion, and experiential exercises participants will learn practical techniques that can be used right away in the playroom. Topics such as boundaries, co-regulation, nervous system activation, emotional flooding and use of aggressive toys and play will be explored.
This training will also guide participants towards a deeper understanding of what it means to become a child’s external regulator during trauma play while practicing how to care for their own nervous system thereby decreasing compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma. The result is the transformation of trauma play into ways of connecting, healing, and mutual trust.
This event will take place on March 4th and 5th, 2022 from 9am-4:30pm HST.
