Advocating for our Clients Using Music, Movement, and Metaphor in Play Therapy
Part 1: Advocating for our Clients in Play Therapy Through the Creative use of Miniatures.
This workshop will demonstrate how to use symbols and figures outside the tray. Clients can build a personal miniature world or use symbols without the use of a traditional sand tray. Participants will learn how to use these unique techniques combining the wonderful use of miniatures and figures to create a metaphor or narrative of the child’s world.
Part 2: Advocating for our Clients in Play Therapy through the Creative use of Music and Movement
Learn how music and sound intersect with play therapy to enhance treatment and outcomes with young, at-risk children. This workshop will explore music and movement from a Gestalt play therapy perspective. Participants will gain knowledge regarding the function of music and movement to strengthen a child's sense of self and support their ability to make better contact with their world.
Part 3: Advocating for our Clients in Play Therapy Through the Creative use of Metaphor
Effective parent consultations are critical in every play therapy practice. This interactive presentation focuses on engaging parents in the therapeutic process through the creative use of metaphor.
