MODULE 5:

INTRODUCTION TO TRAUMAPLAY™

This course is designed to provide participants to an introduction of the TraumaPlay™ approach, where evidence informed trauma treatment with children is translated into a sequence of play-based component modules that celebrate the intersection of the neurobiology of play and the neurobiology of trauma, while honouring 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.

 

It will also introduce participants to the child’s metaphorical use of the playroom where that is demonstrated through a multitude of case examples and augmented with a variety of prop-based play therapy interventions.

 

An additional emphasis in this introductory course includes introducing participants to engaging parents as partners in the treatment process and the intake and assessment procedures surrounding that.
