Ann Meehan:
Awareness of one’s own bodily feelings and physiological responses is one of the most important steps for effective emotional regulation. One of the most common things heard from young people is “it just happened” or “I didn’t have control”. By understanding the warning signs of emotional dysregulation on a thinking, feeling, behaving, and physiological level, young people can become empowered over their choices and emotional regulation. These Cognitive Behavioral Play Therapy activities are to help young people gain awareness, in a developmentally friendly way, of the neuroscience of emotional regulation so their prefrontal cortexes can remain engaged giving them access to reason, logic, and controlled choice. 

Lisa Dion:
Research in neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology sheds light on the need for therapists and parents to act as the child's external regulator during states of dysregulation. When activated, children need to borrow the therapist’s and the parent's regulatory capacity as they work through their challenging thoughts, feelings and sensations. Without the ability of the therapist or the parent to become the external regulator for the intensity that arises for the child, both the child and the adult are at risk for emotional flooding and high levels of dysregulation in their own nervous systems. Over time, this can significantly impact a therapist's and parent's ability to stay attuned and present to the child. In this discussion, from a Synergetic Play Therapy lense, Lisa will discuss what it means and what it takes to become a child's external regulator.

Tracy Turner-Bumberry:
Tracy will discuss emotion dysregulation and the effect it can have on children and teens. The Gross Model of Emotion Regulation will be highlighted as a valuable tool when determining the needs of dysregulated clients. Both antecedent focused and response focused activities will be demonstrated to show the need of prevention when working with emotion dysregulation. Directive Play Therapy concepts will be highlighted for use in home and school settings.

I loved all the resources shared, and never felt I was sitting through a 'sales pitch'! It is ever so important to have a variety of resources available - many of the presenters happily shared options! There were a few presenters who simply 'read' their power point - (not as engaging!); and one or two who spoke WAY too fast for anyone who was taking notes (good thing there is access to the recording!). Overall, however - the "learning" was fun, the information relevant (& current) and the variety of presenters and backgrounds & theory bases made for an excellent presentation! ...AND a fun-filled way to start my day! Thank you! ;-)

This training was tremendously useful. I always walk away from away from Ms. Hartstein's trainings with tons of new ideas and this was no exception. Today my notes include 60 interventions that I can use with my clients, and I'm so excited to try them out! I also love how she weaves together a variety of play therapy modalities -- her training is focused on CBT but includes dramatic play, music, games, art, role play, narrative tools, bibliotherapy, and more. I highly recommend this training!

This training was motivating as Shlomo shared the information with authenticity and passion for the Imago model. I gained a true understanding that Imago Therapy is a model that promotes connection within the space between where couples often don't spend safe and quality time strengthening their relationships. The introduction course demonstrated this well and leaves a yerning to receive advanced knowledge. I truly believe Imago is a game-changer and can offer stonger connections not only between romantic partners, but other dyadic relationships.
