This presentation focuses on discerning sexualized and aggressive play in play therapy. Participants will be immersed in the emotional, behavioral, and psychological markers of developmental trauma, and the special issues these children present in the way they negotiate relationships with self, others, and their communities (including school) and particularly with their play therapists. Play therapy supervisors will identify how to titrate the multifaceted roles they have in supervision as when their supervisees are providing services to traumatized children.
By the end of this course participants are able to: 1) identify post-traumatic play; 2) describe play therapy informed techniques suitable for use in supervision that will demonstrate ways of connecting to children who have been traumatized; and 3) describe skills for improving relationships with traumatized children that can be passed on to supervisees.
