The San Diego Chapter of the California Association for Play Therapy Invites you to join us at our next virtual meeting and presentation:
“Trauma and the Brain & Body: Conceptualizing Play Therapy From the Bottom Up”
Presented by Dr. Renee Turner PhD, LPC-S, RPT-S
A FREE 2.0 CE non-contact workshop
Saturday,11/21/20 –10:00am – 12:30pm PST
This workshop will be presented live via Zoom.
Traumatic experiences are one of the most common presenting concerns in play therapy. In this training, attendees will explore the neurobiology of trauma and its impacts on the developing child’s brain. Through this lens, we will identify key areas to assess when conceptualizing play therapy clients and how a trauma-informed play therapy approach widens the window of tolerance in traumatized children.
After the session, participants will be able to….
1. Name the parts of the triune brain and the impact of hyper- and hypo- arousal in children’s behaviors, emotions, and cognitive processing.
2. Describe key areas of focus for holistically conceptualizing play therapy clients.
3. Apply at least one trauma-informed play therapy intervention with children.
