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.
Theraplay Web Group Supervision will expose you to a variety of cases and levels of Theraplay skills. You will learn more about Theraplay just by observing. And, seeing the success and challenges of your colleagues as they work toward Theraplay certification will give you a realistic model to evaluate your own skills and build confidence.
