Botswana

Botswana

Sinikka Savola, did Theraplay training in Botswana, spending 2 ½ months there last spring (2004). The Finnish government supported this project through 2007. She visited once per year to conduct both Introductory and Intermediate training, as well as supervision. Maun is a village of 44,000 people where 39% of the population is HIV positive. Sinikka adjusted the Theraplay curriculum to deal with child development in a setting where so many are homeless or who have lost both of their parents to AIDS and are living with relatives. Her participants came from a wide variety of backgrounds; some are formally trained and others not. Most are African, but some are European relief workers. They work in rehab centers, schools, and directly with street people, but all share the same goal of using Theraplay to help the children deal with the trauma and loss they have faced.Botswana

Terapija kroz igru je terapija za djecu i obitelji, usmjerena na stvaranje i jačanje privrženosti, samopoštovanja, povjerenja u druge te radosne uključenosti. Temelji se na prirodnim obrascima zaigrane, zdrave interakcije između roditelja i djeteta, a kao takva je osobna, uključuje fizičku aktivnost te je zabavna. Interakcije terapija kroz igru usmjeravaju se na četiri bitne kvalitete, pronađene u odnosima između roditelja i djece: struktura, uključivanje tj. bavljenje njime, odgoj i izazov. Susreti koji uključuju terapiju kroz igru stvaraju aktivan, emocionalan odnos između djeteta i roditelja ili skrbnika, što rezultira promjenom u mišljenju o sebi kao vrijednom i voljenom te o odnosima kao pozitivnim i vrijednim. U tretmanu, terapeut kroz igru vodi roditelja i dijete kroz zaigrane, zabavne igre, razvojno izazovne aktivnosti te nježne, odgojne aktivnosti. Sam čin ovakvih međusobno uključujućih aktivnosti pomaže roditelju u regulaciji djetetovog ponašanja te djetetu šalje poruku ljubavi, sreće i sigurnosti. Pomaže djetetu da se osjeća sigurno, zbrinuto, povezano sa drugima i vrijedno. Ovo zovemo „stvaranje odnosa iznutra prema van.“

セラプレイ(Theraplay)は、愛着(アタッチメント)、自尊心(セルフエスティーム)、他者への信頼を高め、喜びに満ちた関わりを促進し、向上させるために考案された子どもと家族のための心理療法・遊戯療法(プレイセラピー)の一つです。それは親子間の自然なやりとりにみられる、健やかで遊び心あふれる相互作用を基本にしており、身体的でまた直接的な関わりのある楽しいものです。セラプレイにおける、相互作用は乳幼児期の親子で自然に育まれる、楽しく健康な親子のやりとりから抽出された4つの柱、構造(Structure)、関与(Engagement)、養育(Nurture)、挑戦(Challenge)に焦点を当てています。セラプレイのセッションでは、子どもと親、あるいは養育者との活動的で情緒的なつながりを心地よく深める事を目標に行われます。その結果、子どもは自分自身がかけがえのない愛されるべき存在だという事に気付き、さらには他者とも豊かな関係を築いてゆこうとする考え方が芽生えてくるのです。

(セラプレイの)セッションでは、セラプレイセラピストのガイドのもとで、親と子がわくわくするような楽しい遊び、その子どもの発達に即した挑戦、そして優しく慈しみあふれるアクティビティを行います。このような互いに関わりあう相互関係性の促進を通し、親が子どもの言動を適切に制御(Regulation)しつつ、愛情、楽しさ、安全性を子どもに伝える事が出来ます。それにより、子どもは安心して(feel secure)繋がりの中で自分自身に価値を感じながら、(他者・世界)と繋がることへの価値をも見出していきます。

私たちはこれを「関係性を内界から外界へ築きあげる」~building relationships from the inside out~と呼んでいます。

We had our first training in Norway in 2013.  ”Theraplay” er en terapi for barn og familier som går ut på å bygge og styrke tilknytning, økt selvfølelse, tillit til andre mennesker og gledefylt samspill. Den er basert på det naturlige, sunne og lekne samspillsmønsteret mellom barn og foreldre og den er personlig, fysisk og morsom.

Theraplay er basert på fire grunnleggende kvaliteter i et foreldre-barn samspill: Struktur, engasjement, omsorg og stimulerende utfordringer.

I terapitimene etableres det en aktiv følelsesmessig interaksjon mellom barn og forelder/ omsorgsgiver som medfører en man opplever seg selv som verdifull og elskbar og relasjoner som positive og givende.  

I behandlingen veileder Theraplay terapeuten foreldre og barn igjennom morsomme leker, utviklings-støttende, stimulerende og omsorgsfulle aktiviteter.

Gjennom dette samspillet får foreldre hjelp til å regulere barnets atferd samt, formidle kjærlighet, glede og trygghet til barnet. Det styrker barnet opplevelse av trygghet, omsorgsfull ivaretakelse, tilknytning og egenverd. Dette kalles å ”bygge forhold/relasjoner fra innsiden og ut”.

Message to Students and the Clinical Community from The Theraplay Institute Board of Directors

Theraplay® was registered by The Theraplay Institute in 2006 as a protected service mark in South Korea.  Theraplay is a unique intellectual property, now protected by Korean law.  It is not legal or ethical to take this intellectual property, combine it with  other approaches, give it a new name, and offer separate training and certification for it.  To clarify, it is okay to use Theraplay in combination with other treatments, for example child-centered play therapy and Theraplay.  But to give that a new name and call it your own intellectual property would not be acceptable.

After reviewing material about Relationship-Based Play Counseling (RPC) we have concluded that it is fundamentally Theraplay called something else.  We have heard that the Korean Counseling Association for Relationship-Based Play (KCARP) claims that Theraplay has limitations that are improved with RPC.  As far as we can tell the only “limitation” to Theraplay is that our training and certification protocol is too hard and expensive.  It is precisely the rigorousness of our program and the requirements we have for clinical competency and higher education that make Theraplay treatment so respected internationally.  This, in turn, makes Theraplay certification a valuable professional credential.  We hope you will choose Theraplay for your own career.

The certified Theraplay therapists who started KCARP, did not tell The Theraplay Institute that they were doing this, and do not have our permission.  In fact, we have written them recently explaining our strong objections that they have taken our legally protected intellectual property and used it for their own personal and professional gain.  We told them that they cannot remain Certified Theraplay Therapists in good standing as long as they continue to work for KCARP. Their certification is currently suspended until March 21, 2014, after which it will be revoked unless they have met our requirements.

We understand that in Korea it is common to have many societies and professional organizations.  However, only one—the Korean Theraplay Alliance (KTA)—represents Theraplay in Korea.  KTA has an official charter from us to oversee all of the Theraplay training and supervision in Korea and to make decisions to protect the integrity and quality of Theraplay treatment in Korea.  KTA supervisors recommend therapists to us for certification and for becoming supervisors and trainers.  The Theraplay Institute still issues all Theraplay certificates in Korea.  We highly respect KTA board chairman, Dr. Youn Mi-Won, and support all of her and the board’s efforts on behalf of The Theraplay Institute.  It is unfortunate that two of the original KTA board members have decided to leave the KTA board and work for KCARP.  However, there are new board members who will carry on the important Theraplay work in Korea.  

History

In 2002, Certified Theraplay Trainers from The Theraplay Institute came to Seoul for the first time to begin training Korean therapists to do Theraplay. Over thirty therapists have become fully certified Theraplay therapists since that time. 

The Theraplay Institute owns the intellectual property of “Theraplay”, and has legally registered the service mark all over the world.  The registration was filed in South Korea on November 13, 2006.  Ownership of this intellectual property means that The Theraplay Institute sets the standards for Theraplay practice, training and supervision.  The Theraplay Institute issues all certificates for Theraplay Therapists, Trainers and Supervisors.  We maintain very high standards for professional, clinical training to protect the integrity of Theraplay.  

Because of language and cultural differences, it is the goal of The Theraplay Institute to organize Theraplay in each country under the leadership of senior Theraplay clinicians.  The intent is to have certified Theraplay trainers and supervisors providing most of the training and supervision in the language of the students, and to organize a formal group for disseminating information about Theraplay, offering continuing education opportunities for certified therapists, working with The Theraplay Institute to offer training and supervision, and keeping accurate records of Theraplay students and certified therapists within their country.

The Korean Theraplay Alliance

January 1, 2010, The Theraplay Institute chartered the Korean Theraplay Alliance (KTA) to represent Theraplay in South Korea.  KTA is led by a board of senior Theraplay clinicians.  Since its inception, Dr. Youn Mi-Won has been President.  Dr. Youn earned her certification as a Theraplay Therapist in 2004, as a Theraplay Supervisor in 2010 and Theraplay Trainer in 2011.  She is currently the only certified Theraplay Trainer and Supervisor in South Korea.

It is our expectation that all certified Theraplay Therapists and practicum students will maintain membership in KTA in order to keep current on best Theraplay practice and to support the expansion of Theraplay in South Korea.  This group schedules open meetings to discuss issues related to Theraplay practice in South Korea, which members are encouraged to attend.  KTA collects membership dues, maintains a website, schedules training and continuing education opportunities, recommends students for the supervisor practicum, and sponsors the Asian Theraplay Conference.  

KTA is the only official representative of Theraplay in South Korea.  

Theraplay and Relationship-Based Play Counseling

Recently, two KTA board members, Dr. Kim Yoon Kyung and Dr. Hong Jeong Ae, along with Certified Theraplay Therapist, Dr. Choi Soon Ok, have joined with others to form the Korean Counseling Association for Relationship-Based Play (KCARP).  Dr. Kim serves as Chairman, Dr. Choi as Vice Chairman and Dr. Hong as Chairman of Ethics. 

Relationship-Based Play Counseling (RPC) is Theraplay (our intellectual property) combined with some other therapy techniques and renamed.  The Theraplay Institute did not know this was being done.  We were not consulted at any time about this work, and we consider it a serious violation of our legal service mark.  

In July of 2013, we notified the KCARP officers that this is a serious violation, and that they would not be able to keep their Theraplay certification as long as they are involved in this unauthorized use of Theraplay.  After we did not get a satisfactory response, The Theraplay Institute board of directors voted to suspend the certifications of Kim, Hong and Choi for six months, beginning October 21, 2013.  During this time, they can earn their certification back by working with The Theraplay Institute and KTA to correct violations to our service mark, end confusion between Theraplay and RPC, and re-establish a cordial relationship in good standing with KTA.  All other Certified Theraplay Therapists and practicum students who are affiliated with KCARP are also at risk of losing their Theraplay status under these same terms.

To date, they have not responded to us, and their certification will be permanently revoked on March 21, 2014, if they fail to do so. (Updated January 7, 2014 -CS) 

The Theraplay Institute is honored to announce two new certified trainers in South Korea:

Hyunjung Shin(Ph.D) is a certified Theraplay Therapist and Trainer. She earned a Ph.D studying social welfare, child welfare, and child psychotherapy at Ewha and Sookmyung University. She has been interested in phenomenology and interaction, and has published qualitative research ("General transmission in nurturing that have experienced as child counselor-mother" et al.) She is a trainer for Gestalt therapy for children and adolescents, and a professor and dean of student counseling center of Yeonsung University in South Korea.

Sunju Park is a certified Theraplay Therapist as well as the first certified Sunshine Circle Leader in South Korea. She has worked with children in a childcare center for 20 years, using Sunshine Circles for infants and father-child/mother-child groups. Her research focuses on "Application on Sunshine Circles for change or withdrawn children." She also opened "Park Sunju Children's Theraplay Center" In November 2014.

치료놀이는 애착형성과 자아존중감, 타인에 대한 신뢰를 형성하고 가족간의 즐거운 개입을 증진시키는 아동/가족치료입니다. 치료놀이는 부모-자녀 간의 자연스러운 패턴인 활발하고 건강한 상호작용과 더불어 개인적이고 신체적이며 즐거움을 경험하는 것에 근거를 두고 있습니다. 치료놀이의 상호작용은 건강한 부모-자녀관계에서 발견되는 네 가지 필수적인 특성들인 “구조, 개입, 양육, 도전”에 집중합니다.

치료놀이 회기는 부모-자녀관계에 적극적이고 정서적인 연결을 만들어 냄으로써 아동이 스스로를 가치있고 사랑스러운 사람으로 여기게 되고, 다른이들과의 관계를 긍정적이고 의미있게 보는 결과를 이끌어냅니다. 치료놀이시 치료사는 아동과 부모를 활발하고 즐거운게임들과 발달적으로 적합한 도전활동들, 그리고 부드럽고 양육적인 활동들로 안내합니다. 이러한 방법으로 서로에게 개입하는 것은, 부모가 아동의 행동을 조절하고 아동에게 사랑과 기쁨을 표현하며 그리고 아동의 안전에 관해 대화를 나눌 수 있게 도와줍니다. 이것을 통해 아동은 안정감을 얻게 되고 돌봄을 받고 있다고 느끼게 되며, 더 나아가서 부모와 서로 긴밀히 연결되어 있음과 자신이 얼마나 가치로운 사람인지를 느끼게 됩니다.

우리는 이것을“인사이드 아웃 (inside out) 관계형성”이라고 부릅니다.

Cuida a tu familia con alegría
Theraplay es un enfoque terapéutico centrado en el niño y la familia y orientado a fortalecer el vínculo, autoestima, confianza en sí mismo, en los otros y la capacidad de lograr una conexión placentera. Está basado en patrones innatos de juego y sana interacción entre los padres y sus hijos. Es cercano, físico y entretenido. Desde el Theraplay, las interacciones se basan en cuatro dimensiones esenciales en la dinámica padre- hijo; Estructura, conexión, cuidado y desafío.

Durante las sesiones de Theraplay se crea un ambiente activo y de conexión emocional profunda entre padre e hijo, generando en el niño una percepción de sí mismo como competente y amado y del las relaciones, como positivas y gratificantes.

Durante las sesiones de Theraplay, el terapeuta guía al padre e hijo hacia actividades lúdicas, divertidas, apropiadamente desafiantes, tiernas y cuidadosas. El sólo hecho de lograr este tipo de conexión en la díada, ayuda al padre a regular el comportamiento de su hijo, comunicando amor, goce y seguridad a. Ayuda al niño a sentirse seguro, cuidado, conectado, aumentando la confianza y seguridad en sí mismo.

Esta dinámica la llamamos: ¨Construyendo relaciones desde dentro hacia afuera ¨ 

Sweden

Sweden

We have been training at Umeå University since 2003, and have seven certified Theraplay therapists in Sweden, including one Trainer and two Supervisors. Theraplay therapists are doing research in Umeå which they hope to publish soon.

Theraplay är en barn- och familjeterapi som syftar till att bygga upp och stärka anknytning, självkänsla och tillit till andra på ett lekfullt engagerande sätt. Terapiformen är personlig, fysisk och lekfull samt utgår från det naturliga lekfulla och hälsobringande samspelet mellan föräldrar och barn. Interaktionen i Theraplay fokuserar specifikt på fyra essentiella kvaliteter funna i föräldra-barnrelationer; struktur, engagemang, omsorg och utmaning. Theraplaysessionerna skapar och aktiverar känslomässiga band mellan barnet och dess förälder/vårdnadshavare vilket i sin tur leder till en förändrad självbild, barnet känner sig värdefullt och älskvärd, samt får uppleva nära relationer som positiva och känslomässigt påfyllande. Under sessionerna guidar terapeuten förälder och barn i lekfulla och roliga lekar, i mentalt utmanande aktiviteter samt i ömsinta omsorgsaktiviteter. Det ömsesidiga engagemanget hjälper föräldern att kunna reglera barnets beteende och affekter samt att förmedla kärlek, glädje och trygghet till sitt barn. Detta hjälper barnet att känna sig trygg, omhändertagen, anknuten och värdefull. Vi kallar detta att ”bygga relationer inifrån och ut”.

Theraplay® is een vorm van kinder- en gezinstherapie voor het ontwikkelen en bevorderen van de gehechtheidsrelaties, het gevoel van eigenwaarde en het vertrouwen in anderen, waardoor een warme band met de ander mogelijk wordt. Het is gebaseerd op natuurlijke patronen van een speelse, gezonde interactie tussen ouder en kind en is persoonlijk, fysiek en leuk. Theraplay interacties zijn gericht op vier essentiële kenmerken binnen een ouder-kind relatie: Structuur, Betrokkenheid, Verzorging en Uitdaging. Theraplay sessies scheppen een actieve en emotionele band tussen kind en ouder of verzorger, die zich uit in een ontwikkeling van het zelf(beeld) naar waardig en geliefd en een veranderde kijk op relaties als positief en de moeite waard. 

In de behandeling, leidt de Theraplay therapeut de ouder en het kind door speelse en leuke spelletjes, ontwikkelingsgerichte en uitdagende activiteiten en tedere, koesterende activiteiten. Juist door op deze manier met elkaar betrokken te zijn, helpt het de ouder het gedrag van het kind te reguleren en liefde, vreugde en veiligheid te communiceren naar het kind. Het helpt het kind zich veilig, verzorgd, verbonden en waardig te voelen.

Wij noemen dit "het ontwikkelen van relaties van binnen uit".

Theraplay, bağlanma, öz saygı, başkalarına güven ve neşeli bir bağlılık oluşturmak ve geliştirmek için uygulanan bir çocuk ve aile terapisi çeşididir. Ebeveyn ve çocuk arasında doğuştan var olan oyuncu ve sağlıklı etkileşim örüntülerine dayanır, kişisel, fiziksel ve eğlencelidir. Theraplay etkileşimleri, ebeveyn-çocuk ilişkisinde bulunan dört temel özelliğe odaklanır: Yapı, Bağlılık, Yetiştirme ve Mücadele. Theraplay seansları ebeveyn (bakım veren) ile çocuk arasında aktif, duygusal bir bağ yaratır, bunun sonucunda çocuk benliğini değerli ve sevilebilir, ilişkilerini de olumlu ve ödüllendirici olarak görmeye başlar.

Biz buna “içeriden dışarıya ilişki yapılandırması” diyoruz.
