Expressive Play Therapy for Healing Complex Trauma 

This 3-day seminar is for practitioners who use play therapy with children who have experienced multiple traumatic events within the context of pervasive and severe maltreatment —including different forms of abuse (emotional, physical, sexual), neglect and witnessing domestic violence.

We will focus on using expressive play therapy methods to help such children deal with the emotional, cognitive and behavioural issues that bring them to therapy. In the process, we will explore the many ways of helping maltreated children strengthen themselves and, time permitting, begin to heal their wounds and live more healthily in a reality that often cannot be changed.
