Intro

This play therapy training is offered On-Demand as a go-at-your-own pace course for non-contact hours.

For children who have experienced complex trauma, play therapy provides children with an opportunity for a safe space and a meaningful attuned relationship. Incorporating research from Trust Based Relational Intervention, EMDR, and Somatic Experiencing™, the therapist can give the child a voice through directive play therapy techniques focused on facilitating communication, self-regulation, stress management, and social competence, allowing the Window of Tolerance to be widened to a new world of possibilities.
