Poetry and Play Therapy
Presented by Marshall Lyles, LPC-S, LMFT-S, RPT-S
Poetry focuses awareness as images and language find rhythm and balance. The play therapist can benefit from increased connection with poetry by noticing the lyricism of words spoken in the play room, by incorporating works of poetry into play therapy sessions, and by creating poetry with play therapy clients. All of these ideas will be explored in this training.
Participants will be able to:
1. Discuss the intersection of poetry and play therapy basic and advanced skills.
2. Apply concepts from poetic medicine to play therapy sessions.
3. Develop strategies for creating poetry with play therapy clients.
Level of training: Intermediate
