P.L.A.Y.: Play, Laughter, Art, Animals & You

Format Workshop
Presenters Donna Zander
Description Overview
We were all children and young people once, first we PLAYED then we "HUNG OUT" and now we WORK. This one day workshop will explore the theoretical and experiential use of the self via play, laughter, art, animals and other creative strategies in working with children and young people who have experienced trauma. It will explore issues such as observation, assessment, suitability for therapy, the use of language, the use of the self, transference, counter-transference and resistance. Such strategies will be explored in the context of working individually, in groups and in families.
