Parents as Partners in Play Therapy

Paris Goodyear-Brown,United States
11:00 AM -12:00 PM EST

Parents can be powerful allies in the play therapy process, especially when working with traumatized children. TraumaPlay™ principles for helping caregivers become more connected co-regulators, stronger storykeepers, and safer bosses set the stage for a host of play therapy interventions that target treatment goals for parents. Clinicians will leave this training with new ways to provide playful psychoeducation, in vivo doses of delight between parent and child, help parents with their own negative activation, and co-create coherent narratives about hard things. Person of the play therapist reflection and self-care will also be addressed.

Objectives:
  • List the three embodied roles that play therapists can help parents expand.
  • Describe one play therapy prompt for helping parents expand their reflective capacity.
  • Execute five play therapy interventions that support attachment enhancement in parent/child dyads.

Dealing with Aggression in the Playroom

Rinda Blom,South Africe

This presentation will focus on the function and necessity of aggression during play therapy and in the playroom. Ways to handle possible destructiveness and how to assist the child to convert aggression into creative energy will be handled, with an emphasis on how to assist the child to move from chaotic aggression, to focused aggression, to integrated aggression. The role of the therapist when dealing with aggression will be explained, followed by a short case study to illustrate certain key concepts.

A New Big Bang Theory: The Delightful Collision of Play Therapy and Family Therapy

Greg Lubimiv,Canada

Medical Play Therapy

Judi Parson,Australia
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM EST

Play is essential for human development and Play Therapists understand that play is used to access the conscious and unconscious sensations, thoughts, feelings of children. Within the context of the medical and health settings a range of normative, educative and therapeutic play may be available and provided by Hospital Play Specialist or Child Life Professionals. However, for children who have experienced acute or chronic diseases, illnesses, injuries or iatrogenic trauma there may be a need for longer-term medical play therapy. This 50 minute presentation will link both therapeutic play and play therapy with the therapeutic powers of play. A range of psychoeducational preparation techniques for medical procedures will be showcased to reduce anxiety and increase personal strengths to cope with medical encounters.

Objectives:
  • Describe medical play therapy.
  • Identify the therapeutic powers of play relevant to medical play therapy
  • List a range of psychoeducational preparation techniques and give a brief description of each.

Play Therapy for Children Traumatized by Natural Disasters

Akiko Ohnogi,Japan
5:10 PM - 6:10 PM EST

Children worldwide are traumatized by natural disasters. Many of these children will be able to cope over time with the appropriate help of parents and caring adults, while some children may be at risk of reactions impacting the development of the child, and increasing the risk of emotional, behavioral, academic, social, and physical problems throughout the child’s life span. The use of play in healing from trauma in a safe environment changes the trauma network in a child’s brain. As play “speaks” directly to the areas of the brain impacted by the trauma experience, utilizing the therapeutic powers of play is effective and appropriate in dealing with and treating the effects of trauma in children. This webinar will highlight how one can conduct effective play therapy with young children traumatized by a natural disaster through lecture, demonstrations of activities, and presentation of case examples.

Objectives:
  • Identify trauma due to natural disasters and trauma reactions/symptoms in children.
  • Explain the importance of considering the neurobiological effects of trauma in planning appropriate play therapy interventions.
  • Describe at least 3 play therapy techniques that help children traumatized by natural disasters
