One Day Group Theraplay | Christchurch, NZ

December 9, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm NZDT

One Day Training   |   Trainers: Petria Thoresen   |   Download Flyer

Group Theraplay® is an adult-directed, structured play group that incorporates playful, cooperative and nurturing activities that enhance the emotional well-being of children. Unlike other play group approaches, Theraplay learning takes place on a non-verbal level. Instead of talking about positive social behavior, the group leaders and children do positive social interaction. Positive messages from the group interaction gradually become a part of the child’s internal sense of self. If you are a professional working in classrooms, day cares, residential settings or with family groups, this training is for you.

To register, visit or contact Petria Thoresen at [email protected].
