This seminar is for all counseling professionals and play therapists who serve children and their families. Theraplay is a play therapy modality that provides therapeutically based interactions that enable children and parents to develop healthy bonding and strengthen attachment, as trauma recovery needs are met. A focus will be on the techniques of Theraplay interactions that provide needed felt-safety that is crucial to developing healthy relationship interaction and healing of trauma.  The workshop material will be presented using videos and PowerPoint as well as participant practice of Theraplay-based activities focused on healing of trauma.
