Baby Brains: Building Attachment through Play Therapy

Early life experience and traumatic events can predict a child’s future health and social-emotional function. Gain skills to enhance attachment and resilience with young children. Explore tiered interventions to buffer effects of toxic stress with families using attachment-based play therapy.

Play Therapy – Fun for the Whole Family

This workshop is designed to refresh therapists and expand clinician’s tool kits for working with families, parent-child dyads and various types of groups. Using an attachment framework, we will learn and practice play therapy interventions that can be used from the beginning to the end of treatment. Techniques and interventions will address common to complex issues that families bring to therapy. Come ready to play!
