Theraplay® is a child and family modality of play therapy for building and enhancing attachment, self-esteem, trust in others, and joyful engagement. Part of understanding how to use Theraplay is to understand how children respond to a wide range of trauma. This training will teach participants how to identify different types of trauma and what the behavioral effects of each trauma may be, as seen in play therapy treatment. This training also covers the role of shame in shaping development and how to identify if a behavioral response is based in shame. Adverse Childhood Experiences and their impact on the brain and overall health of a population are reviewed. Additionally, this training explores ways to prevent trauma, as well as unique protective and resilience factors that may help a child move beyond their trauma in play therapy. This training will address how to help children and their families heal from trauma using the four dimensions of Theraplay. The focus will be on adapting the typical Theraplay play therapy protocol in an effort to deliver an effective and long-lasting intervention.
