Event description

Description

Therapists will spend two days exploring the basic components of therapy with children and teens from the lense of neurobiology and Synergetic Play Therapy. Through didactic and experiential teachings, therapists will learn cutting-edge research on interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, nervous system regulation and brain development as the research is translated into practical ways of working with children, teens and parents. Participants will also learn what it means to attach to one's self as the cornerstone for all healing, the importance of congruent emotional expression in the therapy room, how to identify types of dysregulation in your clients, how to build a child’s regulatory capacity, how to talk to and involve parents and ultimately how to re-pattern a child's nervous system through the therapy process.

PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN:

  • The states of activation of the nervous system and how to work with them during sessions

  • How to support the integration of aggressive play in the play therapy process

  • How to use principles from Interpersonal Neurobiology and Synergetic Play Therapy to support the therapist’s own regulation and prevention of compassion fatigue and burnout

  • The most important goal when working with teenage clients

  • How to develop a stronger regulatory capacity with their clients

  • The importance of authentic expression and mindfulness when facilitating a child’s and teen’s process

  • The concept of “The Set Up” in Synergetic Play Therapy and how to use this information to facilitate the client’s process

  • The four primary threats of the brain and how to use this information to create a neuroception of safety in the session

  • What it means to become the external regulator and why it is necessary to support the client’s ability to integrate their challenging thoughts, sensations and emotions
