Playful EMDR with Children Webinar Series: Synergetic Play Therapy and EMDR – Becoming the External Regulator for Integration
October 9, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
With the release of the book, EMDR with Children in the Play Therapy Room: An Integrated Approach by Anne Beckley-Forest and Annie Monaco, they will be offering a Playful EMDR with Children Webinar Series.
Join Lisa on October 9, 2020 1:00-4:00pm EASTERN TIME as she and Jan Schaad discuss Integrating EMDR and Synergetic Play Therapy (a chapter in the book).
Using a Synergetic Play Therapy lens and a framework rooted in interpersonal neurobiology, this presentation will teach you how to become the child’s external regulator as their disturbances arise in the playroom. The result is a deeper level of felt safety, allowing the child to integrate more quickly and fluidly. Understanding nervous system activation, emotional flooding, co-regulation in both directive and non-directive EMDR/play therapy sessions and how to work with the spontaneous emergence of the client’s triggered states will be explored.
- Describe what it means to become the child’s external regulator in a play therapy setting to help deepen integration.
- Identify three non-directive EMDR interventions that can be used in a non-directive play therapy session.
- Describe four skills the play therapist must embody in order to co-regulate the child towards resolution.
