Event Description

Speaker: Christine Dargon, Ph.D.

Children lack some cognitive abilities needed to understand their world experiences because they are still developing. In addition, they also lack the vocabulary to communicate their emotions and perceptions to someone else. This is where Play Therapy can be very useful and a vital tool. This one day workshop will teach attendees how to use play therapy as an incredible method of communication and diagnostics. It will teach you how to interpret the ways in which children play, the importance of what they play with/what they create, and how to interpret their interactions with us as the professional. By attending this seminar, you will learn how to understand and determine what the individual is struggling with and causes for presenting behaviours and emotions through their play. Attendees will leave with a tool box filled with ready to use Play Therapy techniques that they will immediately be able to implement in their work with children and clients of all ages. This tool box will consist of appropriate tools for different presenting problems such as anger, ADHD, depression, anxiety and more. Some of the tools will include Sand Tray therapy, colouring, the use of puppets, dance/movement, “I Spy”, and so many other great techniques. Much of this conference will include active learning and participation. So get ready to learn, have fun and see the world through a child’s eyes.
