TraumaPlay™: A Flexibly Sequential Play Therapy Model for Treating Traumatized Children
IN-PERSON Event Only
Play therapists must be able to explain our clinical choices all along the continuum of care when working with traumatized children and families. TraumaPlay™ translates evidence informed trauma treatment with children into a sequence of play-based component modules that celebrate the intersection of the neurobiology of play and the neurobiology of trauma, while honoring current evidence-based approaches in the field of trauma. Each component represents an important dimension of play therapy for trauma treatment and articulates both a specific treatment goal and accompanying interventions. The child’s metaphorical use of the playroom is demonstrated through a multitude of case examples and augmented with a variety of prop-based play therapy interventions. This flexible, phase-based model differentiates between goals of trauma treatment that are best accomplished through non-directive play therapy methods and goals that are best served by including attachment focused play therapy approaches that include Parents as Partners, cognitive-behavioral play therapy interventions, sandtray methods and other expressive therapy techniques. Come learn the overarching trajectory for trauma treatment as well as a multitude of practical clinical tools that can be immediately integrated into your practice.
